ST. Louis (KMOV.com) – More than a year after defeating COVID-19, a man in Illinois praises a life-saving health care worker but praises his father who didn’t survive. I’m always thinking.
Rob Welge, 58, from Chester, Illinois, was admitted to the Baptist Medical Center in Missouri last spring for two months and was ventilated for two weeks.
I didn’t know how bad my condition was or how bad others were, “Welge said. He became ill at the same time as a family of five and had to be hospitalized a few days after his father Don. I had to.
“He was infected with the coronavirus disease a few days ago and was taken to Mobap. Then I did, but we never met again,” Welge said, 84 years old. Did not know that his father died of his own illness. “It was very heartbreaking. Basically, I was working on my own problem. I had no real contact with the outside world and was very critical.
Welge is grateful that doctors and nurses like Dr. Kenneth Remy have helped him. An incident that Dr. Remy calls a miracle.
“I definitely thought he would die,” Remy said. Remy has seen too many cases end up in reverse. A few months ago, Remy recorded a video due to a surge in cases and deaths during the peak of the pandemic.
“This is what you see at the end of your life if you don’t start wearing a mask when you’re in public,” he said in a viral video of the time.
Now things are looking for Remy. He recorded a new video on Tuesday showing how most ICU buildings are almost empty.
“I went through one of the COVID units and it’s pitch black. It’s completely closed. All three wings are dark,” said Remy. “There is hope, there is power, and we have it. Must be used. “
This is the moment he has been working for over a year, motivated by a success story like Welge.
“We would like to thank the nurses and doctors and follow up with the staff at Burns Hospital,” Welge said.
Welge returned to work in September and says he still has symptoms of the new coronavirus infection, such as pain and pain, but I am very grateful to the staff here at Baptists in Missouri.
