(Rev. Dr. Nicholas "Nick" Marica is a 69 year old pastor who was diagnosed with Covid-19 and Diabetes on Christmas Day, 2020. He spent the next 6 months in three different hospitals. This blog tells the story of the struggles that he and his family endured.)
They put me in a medical coma in January for over 3 weeks. The results of the medically induced coma were horrific. I was left with a grotesque and potentially deadly bed sore at the base of my spine that you could fit your fist into and reached to the bone. It would take over 9 months to heal fully.
Kathy discovered that a “Do Not Resuscitate” bracelet had been placed on my wrist. Neither Kathy nor I had consented to that. Kathy told them she would not leave the hospital until it was taken off.
NEXT: "GET BUSY LIVIN..."
