My prayers are with him and his family. Keep the faith.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

Yesterday morning my cousins lungs were bleeding internally. He lost 6 pints of blood. They rushed him to surgery and gave him 6 pints. They got him stabalized and his O2 was at 80. This morning the doctor come out and told my aunt his O2 had dropped to 50 and there is a good chance his heart may stop. They are basically done doing all they can for him medically. It's up to human strength, divine intervention or pure luck at this point if he makes it!

Is he a candidate for ECMO? That's pretty much the last resort in these situations.

Realistically, it might be time to say goodbye. The luckiest way a person may go is surrounded by his family.

Thank you for the updates. If he doesn't make it, may he go peacefully and painlessly.

You're welcome. I hope his journey went well to whatever, if anything, comes next.

I am sad to hear of your Cousin's passing. He is at least the third person I have heard of who got fully vaccinated but had underlying health conditions, and got Covid and passed away. Which brings further credence to my pointing out that the harassment of non vaccinated people should stop as many people have underlying health condition that will make them even more suspectible to Covid if they get vaccinated.
One man's offense is another man's humor.

It's actually a terrible infection, because you might not notice it, but it can be bad for your lungs. Lung damage is a very scary thing.
