When COVID 19 hit the nation, the ICUs were packed with patients with severe respiratory issues. Many were put on life support and a few were lucky to be put on ECMO with a chance to fight this virus.
One of them was this amazing guy! What a blessing to have worked with him. He was one of my favorite patients and took care of him when he got his new lungs. I didn’t know at the time that he was the first patient in the region to get a double lung transplant. Such an inspiration – it was a roller coaster watching him get back on his feet. From breathing to physical activity, he survived and got to go home. He had a beautiful family with girls and a lovely wife who always visited every chance they got.
