Dr. Antonio Bayardo is a beloved Mexican pediatrician and devoted Catholic dad who does a lot of charitable work in his profession as a doctor for children and outside of his profession helping the most in need. Dr. Bayardo got COVID when he performed an emergency surgery on one of his little patients in a COVID hospital. He started with flu symptoms on December 12th. the nightmare began on December 24th on Christmas Eve when he got worse and needed hospital treatment but there was nothing available and we had to try everything we could at home to keep him alive.
Dr. Bayardo has a family of 7 and they are going through desperate times, that is why they are appealing to your kindness and support.
Dr. Antonio Bayardo had difficulty breathing and started treatment with dioxide and a lot of medications. He is a fighter and he managed to stay alive. My dad stayed at home with ups and downs with oxygen and a borrowed small kind of ventilator that helped him breathe. The only thing keeping him alive was a frugal device connecting multiple oxygen sources to an uncomfortable mask that was hurting him. He could not survive without the mask for more than a few seconds, making basic tasks like eating or drinking water nearly impossible. His family could not keep up with the level of attention he needed, finding where to fill up oxygen tanks during the Holidays and weekends, multiple runs to the drugstore every day and praying for his health and for strength to endure these gruesome times for 12 days. Thank God when he had a more severe downturn a friend of his found a room and he was finally hospitalized. He arrived at the hospital in an awfully bad condition, was intubated right away and is now in a serious state with pulmonary thromboembolism and a series of other life-threatening complications due to COVID.
His family is asking for your help and support to save the life of a man who has dedicated his own to take care of the health of so many children.
