Like many people in the world right now, my father Perry Kendall has contracted and has been affected by the horrible COVID-19. Eleven days ago he tested positive for the virus, but during the duration of this pandemic he did his best to stay healthy, and quarantine himself to protect others. Unfortunately, the virus took its toll and after experiencing difficulty breathing, he was forced to take an ambulance to the hospital on Monday.
After a long, lonely, and agonizing night in the COVID positive section of the ER. He was finally admitted to the hospital Tuesday, and taken to the COVID unit, at which point, he was diagnosed with pneumonia in both lungs. Since then he has been receiving much needed daily care including high flow oxygen, IV steroids, antibiotics, and convalescent plasma.
As we all know, hospital expenses add up very quickly and the consequences of this virus will be lifelong. We would not normally ask for the help of others like this, but my father and our family believe the people around us can truly make a difference.
Thank you for taking the time to read my father’s story, as it is so sadly similar to others right now. Any type of monetary donation, sharing to friends, or even private prayers will be invaluable to us in this moment.
Thank you again. God bless.
