    OB/GYN Adeline Fagan (28) died after a 2 month battle with COVID

    https://www.cnn.com/2020/09/22/us/ho...ath/index.html

    Adeline Fagan, a second year OBGYN resident living in Houston, died early Saturday after a couple months-long battle with Covid-19, her family announced in a post on a GoFundMe page established on her behalf.

    Fagan had just started her second year of residency in Houston when she got sick, the GoFundMe page said.

    While she mostly worked delivering babies, Fagan was doing a rotation in the ER treating Covid patients, the post said. Despite a history of asthma, upper respiratory infections and pneumonia, her sisters shared with CNN affiliate KHOU, going into work was "what (Adeline) wants to be doing."

    "She wants to get out of bed every morning and deliver babies and help women," Maureen Fagan told KHOU.

    Adeline Fagan arrived the morning of July 8 feeling good and "excited to see patients," but by the evening of her 12-hour shift, she began to feel "under the weather," the initial post on her GoFundMe page said.

    Her symptoms were mostly intense flu-like that escalated within the week to a hospital stay. She spent weeks in the hospital battling Covid-19, was given several different respiratory therapies and put on dozens of drugs, none of which she positively responded to.

    On August 3, before entering an experimental drug trial, Adeline had to be intubated and placed on a ventilator since her lungs could no longer support her, the GoFundMe post said. On August 4, she was placed on ECMO, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, to oxygenate her blood while the ventilator opened her lungs through positive pressure. Fagan's family projected on the GoFundMe page that she would be on the ventilator and ECMO for at least six to eight weeks in hopes that her lungs would heal themselves.

    Fagan did not survive. She was 28 years old, according to her sister, Maureen Fagan.

    "The time the world stopped for a moment and will never be the same. Our beautiful daughter, sister, friend, physician, Adeline Marie Fagan, MD passed away," the post, written by Fagan's father, Brant, stated Saturday morning.

    Adeline Fagan's sister, Natalie Fagan, told KHOU that "from the beginning of time her sister wanted to be a doctor."

    "She fought for it," Natalie Fagan said. "She fought hard. She studied hard. She studied really hard and she got there."

    Why do you feel she'll get demonized?

    Because there is so many COVID-19 conspiracies out there that the heroes such as the Doctors, nurses and virologists are being demonized by conspiracy theorists running for office in the 2020 elections.
