Near-death experience with COVID-19 turns man into vaccine believer
"The man upstairs definitely, definitely had a hand in this," said Denny Thompson.
Danny Thompson spent three months here in methodist hospital machines kept his body alive while Covid ravaged it. He says he doesn't remember a thing and says it's a miracle he's alive today. I have a Covid cough still. Um when I started confidence very hard to stop it. But if that's the worst, Denny Thompson has to deal with after surviving a life and death battle with COVID, he'll take it after what the 51 year old husband and father went through these past five months. Denny is just happy to be alive. Everybody said there was no way he was going to survive. And even did he would never be the same. This is Denny fighting for his life. Just four months ago after he came down with Covid in early february, his wife kelly got it too. I was just tired. You know, just that real tired. A key thing. Denny though, got so sick. At one point, doctors thought he may need a lung, heart and kidney transplant if he had any chance of making it. And they were also saying, you know, he may you may may survive, but he may be on a ventilator the rest of his life or and and have to do dialysis the rest of his life. Then in the hours after Denny's family signed a do not resuscitate order should his heart stop, he started to improve man upstairs definitely, definitely had a hand in this Danny and his wife kelly admit last year at this time they were wearing masks but weren't worried about getting the virus. I just thought it was one of those things that might have been blown out of proportion and healthy people don't get sick. And I've proved I proved that wrong. A few weeks ago, Denny got the johnson and johnson vaccine. If I would have got sick, I would probably like, I don't know if I need it or not, but I did go through it and it's it is as bad as I say. It is for certain people. That's why he's encouraging others to take covid seriously and get vaccinated. I was not a big believer in it. Um, I'm a believer now.
