The wife of a Texas man is sounding the alarm after her husband died following his second Covid jab, which doctors told him was necessary to remain on the lung transplant recipient list.
Speaking to the Children’s Health Defense, the wife of Bobby Bolin, Amy, said she was appalled by the doctor’s orders that ignored her husband’s medical history and ultimately cost him his life.
“In the medical field, your goal is supposed to be to improve and save people’s lives, and instead you’re giving them one option — you either do this or you can’t get a life-saving transplant,” Amy said.
The bereaved wife says her husband, who suffered a rare medical condition called COPA syndrome, felt compelled to take the second jab in order to live.
“He knew that without lungs he was not going to live because his lungs were failing him. But look at what happened by making that choice.”
After Bolin’s condition worsened and a stent was inserted to alleviate blockage of an artery, doctors determined he should be a candidate for a double-lung transplant.
“Once Bolin was finally approved for new lungs, he was told he would have to get vaccinated against COVID in order to be an eligible candidate for the transplant, even though he had already recovered from the virus,” reports Children’s Health Defense.
Amy “pushed back pretty hard with the transplant team,” and demanded to know why they would require the controversial jab for Bobby who was already immunocompromised and likely had Covid antibodies.
“It didn’t make sense to me,” Amy said. “He was extremely immunocompromised. He even struggled to take the flu shot, and we even fought the team about that because he would end up in the ICU every time it was given to him.”
According to Amy, no major side effects were witnessed after the first Moderna injection.
Following Bobby’s second jab, the married couple decided to take a short vacation to Jamaica before the big surgery.
“It was going to kind of be our last hurrah knowing we were about to face a very big life change,” Amy said. “When you’re on the transplant list you can’t be more than an hour away from home. We felt like we needed to get away to reconnect and have some ‘us’ time before life got really crazy.”
During the flight back to the US, Bolin suffered a pulmonary embolism that required the pilot to declare an emergency landing.
“All of a sudden his sats [oxygen saturation] started dropping,” Amy said. “He had a pulse oximeter on his finger, and I’m watching his oxygen levels go from 92 to 85, to 80, to 60. He dropped all the way down to the 40s, which is brain-damage level.”
In the meantime, an ICU nurse and doctor on the flight helped Bobby, as crew members administered him pure oxygen from onboard reserve tanks.
Bobby did not go to a hospital after they landed because his condition had stabilized, and doctors in the area would be unaware of his medical condition.
“A few days later we ended up in the hospital because I noticed his cognitive awareness had been impacted and he just wasn’t himself,” Amy said.
Bobby was assessed as having suffered a pulmonary embolism and was also diagnosed with atrial fibrillation, a heart condition characterized by irregular or rapid beating of the heart that can lead to blood clots, which Amy says was never a problem in the past.
“This is a man who multiple times a year was in the hospital being observed for his lung condition and never, never ever, had they ever identified any rhythmic issues with his heart until this occurrence happens,” she said.
When Amy tried to tell the doctors the illness could be vaccine-related considering the proximity of the jab, she says she was ignored.
“And when I questioned it [the vaccine] of course it was ‘Oh no, that has nothing to do with it.’ And I said I can’t ignore the fact that the second injection just happened and now he has developed heart issues and blood clot issues that had never been present before, so why are we ruling that out so quickly rather than looking into that being a possibility? But, it fell on deaf ears.”
Instead, Bobby was put on a litany of pharmaceutical drugs during the last remaining days of his life.
“They put him on blood thinners and medication for his heart condition. When he passed away he was on 31 prescription medications, so we were just throwing medicine at him trying to figure it out and it just never got resolved,” Amy said.
According to Amy, Bobby felt obligated to take the shots out of a sense of desperation.
“When you have limited lung capacity and you feel like you can’t catch your breath and breathe, it just becomes a vicious circle of stress and anxiety, and again they could not figure out how to get this AFib under control,” Amy told The Defender.
“It was unfair, it was unjust and it was inhumane that he was going to sleep at night thinking — ‘what do I do here?’”
The grieving widow advised others facing similar struggles to take a stand for medical freedom, saying, “People have the right to take the shot if that is what they think is best for them.”
“I never felt like this was best for him … ever ever ever. And to be told again that you can either do this or not be eligible for transplant left him in a space of complete desperation — and he did it out of complete desperation.”
“It just sickens me, it really does,” Amy said. “His legacy is really important to me and I don’t want to see another wife and family face the same things we’ve faced these last few months.”
In the meantime, she’s requested an autopsy to get more answers on her husband’s death.
