Houston firefighter put off getting vaccinated — now he needs new lungs to survive (like RDS)


Raw Story: A Houston firefighter who kept putting off vaccination will need new lungs to survive a weeks-long battle with COVID-19.

Wayne Davis caught the coronavirus on the job and has been hospitalized since the middle of last month, but his wife has watched his condition worsen knowing the worst symptoms could have been prevented, reported KHOU-TV.

“I was vaccinated and I just kept getting on him to go do it,” said his wife, Caitlin Davis. “He would say, ‘I’ll go do it,’ and kept putting it off. He just never did it.”

The father of three remains ICU at Memorial Hermann Hospital in the Texas Medical Center in desperate need of a bilateral lung transplant, and doctors say he won’t survive without new lungs.

“The virus destroyed his lungs,” his wife said. “It’s just been a rollercoaster of emotions day-by-day, wondering if we’re going to get the phone call that he’s passed

Four of Wayne’s colleagues on the fire department have already died from COVID-19, and Caitlin Davis said her husband’s life-threatening infection should serve as a wakeup call to others who’ve been hesitant to get vaccinated.

“Our story shows people that it isn’t just older people,” she said. “It can be your family very easily.”

  1. Sad. During the summer of 2020, I saw pictures of lungs that had been destroyed by covid compared to normal lungs. That was very, very convincing to me. Your lungs cannot reconstitute themselves. Once they are destroyed by covid, it just does not get better. De worming paste is not going to do the job. It’s hard to get my head around why RDS did not understand this or the danger and risks he was taking – especially because he was an expert in open source intelligence.

    • Amen. I’ve been putting my lungs to test every single day of my life for the past 50 years, that’s how long I’ve been bicycling every day for two hours minimum, and when I caught Covid between my first and second vaccine I knew it was bigger than me. And I’ve had bad pneumonia before.

      I don’t have the same lung capacity as of before Covid even though my down time during Covid was only 5 days. The smell sense recovers but not the lungs.

  2. Why is this not Mentioned here?

    Abstract: Analysis of the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database can be used to estimate the number of excess deaths caused by the COVID vaccines. A simple analysis shows that it is likely that over 150,000 Americans have been killed by the current COVID vaccines as of Aug 28, 2021.
