"He's not doing good. It's not looking in our favor," she said. "His lungs are stiff due to the fibrosis. They called and said they've run out of options for him and asked if I would consent to a do not resuscitate. And it would be up to us when to stop treatments."

It's hard to feel sorry for this guy when you read this:
" When he first felt symptoms on July 26, his wife told the Standard-Times, he refused to get tested or seek medical care. He instead began treating himself with a cocktail of Vitamin C, zinc, aspirin and ivermectin, an anti-parasitic drug that has been falsely promoted as an effective treatment for COVID-19 by conservative media. He was taken to the hospital on July 30."

This kids may end up better off if the Mom remarries and gets a smarter husband.

Time to end ICU tyranny. Set Caleb free.

My only regret is that he is unconscious and unable to feel pain.

@#3 ... an anti-parasitic drug that has been falsely promoted as an effective treatment for COVID-19 by conservative media. ...

At what point do those promoting false treatments become responsible for the sickness and deaths they cause?

People like Hannity and Ingraham need to be arrested. Some fault lies on the patient. Deworming meds for Covid? You have to be a little smarter than that. Common sense would tell you it isn't treatable that way.

He refused to trust doctors on the vaccine or masks.
He refused expert trusted medical treatment and used treatments from Facebook and Fox News.
Why does he get treatment from doctors he clearly doesn't trust? Dump his ass on the sidewalk and let Facebook/Fox News watchers cure him.

This has gotta be the feel good story of the day.

Geeze, I hate to see anyone die. But maybe it's a blessing in disguise.

There's another year before the mid election season. That's another won't be voting.

Why do these idiots that refuse to take medical advice end up in hospitals? You'd think there'd be a clinic just for the MAGAts, run by graduates of the Rand Paul school of quackery.

Like all Republicans and especially Trump, they know better than people who went to school for 8-12 years to study the subject.

"a protest against the "government being in control of our lives."

Moments later:

"He has been ventilated and heavily sedated in the ICU with COVID-19 since Aug. 8."

Government ICU or private ICU?

Unfortunately a guy this dumb will almost surely have five children by two baby mamas and a wife.

Some many low IQ idiots that are willing to literally die for a political ideology. These deaths are so totally preventable. Morons! Oh well, one less Trumper, one less GQP voter.

Stories like this are sadly being replicated on a daily basis.

Death certificates should list cause of death as "Arrogance & Stupidity"

Someone on DR (can't remember who) posted this quote from a health care worker:

"If you don't trust doctors and science to keep you from getting sick, why the hell are you clogging up hospitals trusting them to cure you?"

Which is a very valid point ...

Impressive that trump is still killing people and he's not even president anymore.

Why is this news any more? People who don't wear masks get sick and die. Seems to be a common theme here. I guess some here don't get the message.

If I dab a spot of Noxzema near my nostrils I can confront Arrogance & Stupidity with a minty freshness.

HE DIED:

Anti-Mask Freedom Rally' Organizer Who Took Ivermectin Dies From Covid-19 After Weeks-Long Battle

A Texas man who helped organize a "Freedom Rally" protesting against pandemic restrictions last summer died from Covid-19 on Saturday.

Caleb Wallace, a 30-year-old father of three (and soon to be four), battled the virus for weeks in the ICU, the San Angelo Standard-Times reported. He had been "unconscious, ventilated and heavily sedated" since Aug. 8. His wife, Jessica Wallace, said that he initially began experiencing symptoms on July 26. and wrote on a GoFundMe page that he had been in the hospital since July 30.

Just pull the plug on him already there are people out there that have been fighting to live while he's been trying to die.

He's dead now. See #23. That's him.

"Weeks-Long Battle"

Pretty sure his battle with common sense went on for decades.

Millions are fighting on his side.

Congratulations, Republicans!
You built that.

I'm glad to hear there's an empty bed. Is the hospital near the ocean? They could install a catapult for people like him.

This will be the #1 story you are guaranteed not to see on fox news.

The world is better off without him and others who willfully spread ignorance. His death may very well save the lives of others because he won't be organizing anymore super spreader events.
God sent this plague to cleanse the world of those who reject the reality of creation. This is a message to others who continue to deny the remediation measures that God has enabled man to leverage. Accept God's gifts or die.
