Experience in hospital:
I do not know how he was treated. I was not allowed to be in the hospital with him, while he was awake before he was ventilated. I was not given calls or progress reports, finally on about the 3rd day, I would call the nurses to get updates. The nurses treated me with respect and compassion, while talking to the doctors, that was another story.
I honestly do not know what killed my husband. I put in a request for the hospital record on 02-01-22 and have yet to recieve them. The hospital keeps telling me that a doctor has yet to sign off on the records. Quite honestly, I would like to know what happened, what all medication he was truly on, the doses and what went on. I have lots of questions as to what actually happened.
Leon “Buck” and Jill Parton were together 17 years and had two kids. Buck was only 50yrs old when he came down with Covid. On December 12th, 2021, his birthday, he needed to go to the hospital. They thought he had a bad sinus infection. However, the hospital admitted him with Covid pneumonia. Soon after, they said he had an “episode” and needed to be moved to ICU on a Bipap mask. Buck was started on his 10 day course of the toxic drug, remdesivir and not long after he developed kidney failure. On December 15, Buck was put on a ventilator for the next 23 days of his life. For the first 14 days of his hospital stay he was completely isolated from his wife and family. There was virtually no communication between the hospital and Jill. The nurses were nice and answered her questions but the doctors were often rude and short with Jill if she even was able to talk to them at all. Buck was on a cocktail of sedatives and paralytics and even woke up after about 2 weeks on the vent, however when he did they just re-sedated him right back to an unresponsive state. Jill got the gut feeling that they just looked at her husband as an unvaccinated lost cause from the beginning. Had they tried other treatments or let him wake up and get weaned off the vent, she wonders if he would still be with her today.
Buck Parton passed away on January 8, 2022 with many unanswered questions and “what if’s” plaguing his wife, family and friends. We intend of helping Jill figure out what exactly happened to her young husband and see that justice is served.
Rest in Peace Buck Parton
