I was admitted several times in a matter of days - first due to a high temperature three days before the January surge and the second because of a highly erratic drop of my glucose levels. Normally it goes the other direction but this strange drop was an alarming 85, then soon after became 75, then 65. The usual intake of orange juice, peanut butter, chocolate and glucose tablets to raise my glucose levels was not working this time. Within hours, my readings continued to plummet to a daunting 35 which meant a trip back to the hospital. It was then that several tests confirmed that I was positive for Covid-19.Damn! It really just knocked me off my socks. I could not believe this because I had no symptoms- like the tightness of the chest, the difficulty breathing, the diarrhea or the aches and pains that I read about. I had none of that. It was then that I realized that Covid is even more INSIDIOUS for someone like me- one who has a compromised immune system from diabetes and cancer, making the infection process that much more lethal.
It took a bit of time before they got my glucose to an acceptable level, but I was nowhere out of the danger zone. They were discussing my options and being INTUBATED was one of them- and one that I was adamant against.
Looking back, I thought if I'd gotten on this Ivermectin earlier, maybe I wouldn't have had anything like this at all. Maybe I would've never even contracted Covid. I declined Dr. Lee's suggestion to keep taking the antibiotics. Not only did I feel no sense in continuing antibiotics, but be both accepted me getting discharged.
My wife got along really well with the Ivermectin. Because she had been around me, she also tested positive for COVID but she never got admitted to the hospital or anything. Her symptoms did not warrant that even though she was diagnosed the day after I was. We are very blessed probably more deserving than we should be. But we persevered and we're here to tell you this story is as brief as it is during the pandemic.
THE KIRBY LEWIS CRUSADE
Why Kirby's Experience is a Real MIRACLE Story!by: Debbie Falborn, RN (aka The Chaga Lady)
Like this one beautiful man that needed this treatment to save his life, this information is priceless for so many others who are suffering this way. The fact that he continues to do better and his wife got better says this Ivermectin should really be studied and it should be studied hard.
I understand Ivermectin is more recognized abroad, and case studies are done (blind and double blind) with Hydroxychloroquine + a placebo + Ivermectin in the US showing that it does prevent the spread of COVID-- however, it has not been approved by the FDA. It is used as a anti-parasitic, because it prevents and actually encourages the body to get rid of parasites. It shows promise in the studies that are being done.
"Statements about IVERMECTIN like Kirby's story and Dr. Kory's articles comes from that life-or-death end of the ICU where most of the patients are extremely critical and there's not that many interventions that would make much of a difference. Both patients and ICU experts have a short window with disorders like Covid- such that they recognize what works right. Let it be for prevention or treatment, finding a drug that can save lives without risk or injury is what we all strive for in this pandemic- and Kirby's story is so vital to getting everyone to listen to exploring this solution and others that are out there. I personally don't know how the vaccine is going to pan out down the line, but we need to look at ALL options!"
