I lost my dad October 30, 2021 to Covid complications. My father was in the hospital for two weeks and we were advised to put him in a induced coma four days later we were told by the doctors that my father had the delta virus in his lungs, then we were later told that they could not get my dad to wake up from the induced coma and that he was probably brain dead. The next day he was going to have a CT scan of his brain but later that day around 9:00 PM. We got the call that my dad went into cardiac arrest and after 30 minutes of the staff trying to bring him back, my dad was gone. My family and I will never understand how our father being on life-support still didn’t survive Covid-19 or why his heart stopped in the first place after being advice to stop life support.
