Posted on 07/30/2021 10:11:01 PM PDT by Berlin_Freeper
A Tennessee lawmaker who battled COVID-19 for nearly eight months is encouraging the public to “consider getting vaccinated.”
Republican Rep. David Byrd detailed his struggle with the virus in a lengthy statement Friday, describing how the disease put him in an intensive care unit on a ventilator for 55 days. He says his family began planning his funeral.
“I have no memories of this time, but my family will certainly never forget it. They were traumatized daily by the distressing updates on my status,” Byrd wrote.
Byrd, 63, added that eventually his liver began to fail after he was taken off the ventilator, requiring him to need a transplant. He received a new liver on June 12.

Byrd's statement comes nearly a week after conservative talk radio host Phil Valentine said he regretted his vaccine skepticism after being hospitalized from COVID-19 and encouraged his listeners to get the shot.Conservative Radio Host Phil Valentine Put on Ventilator Due to COVID
I am assuming because he was on a ventilator that he did not use either Invectramin(sp?) or Hydroxyquorqline (once again spelling).
Once again, based on my assumption that he did not avail himself of known treatments for COVID-19, not sure I want to listen to this guy at all.
For quite some time, whenever I hear stories like this, the first thing I want to ask……what treatment did he receive? Was he just put in a ventilator?
Was he given the option to use other treatments, ivermectin, HCQ, etc?
Are either of those Meds OTC (Over The Counter), or available to buy online without a prescription?
Asking for a friend.
What’s the difference between an auto mechanic and a medical practitioner?
Continued prayers for Conservative Talk Radio Host Mark Valentine.
I think it’s prove. That this thing can be serious and deadly for some.
But….Fauci says masks don’t work, but now we’re heading back to mask mandates.
I just found out today that I’ll be losing out on a job because the State Dept is mandating the shot. And then there’s this…
We’re living in the Twilight Zone.
I doubt they even tried ivermectin. How many hosps watch their patients die without ivermectin consideration?
That’s some wife he’s got.....
Nearly all of them, it seems.
You cant get hydroxychlorquine OTC, but you can get cuercetin. Or drink lots of tonic water with quinine.
This is one of the reasons I cannot advise many people on taking that vaccine or not. I can only speak for myself.
If I had kids or dependents, I would have to think about them too, but I don’t have that issue right now.
I don’t believe it.
Completely agree with you. If he had gotten the hydroxychloriquine cocktail, he would have been cured within five days, just like I was in in October.
You can get the hydroxychloriquine cocktail from www.americasfrontlinedoctors.com if your personal doctor won’t prescribe it for you.
