Early last month, January 2022, I developed a cough and fatigue. At first my doctor suspected pneumonia, but tests were negative. My nurse suggested a COVID test, and unfortunately this was positive. For two years, I have been very concerned about getting this pandemic virus, because I have only 27% breathing capacity. In addition to being quadriplegic, this is a vulnerable combo.
The good news is that I fully recovered. My lung specialist, Dr. Ameen, was able to get me in to receive a monoclonal antibody infusion, one of only 18 available that week. This, along with having been vaccinated and boosted, may have saved my life. After 46 years of challenging the pharmaceutical industry, I do appreciate this incredible assistance. Thanks, everyone, or as my ancestors said in Lithuanian: Aciu!

Thanks for sharing some positive news about the medical system! It is awesome when medical research really helps people instead of harming them. There is probably no other country I would rather live in if I broke an arm or was involved in a life-threatening accident. The ER is filled with wonderful people who save lives everyday. It is nice to be reminded of that since I am so painfully reminded of the reality of iatrogenic harm in the mental health system every day!! I am grateful that you had access to great care and are on the road to a full recovery from COVID!
