After discovering that her father suffered from COVID, her mom went to the doctor to confirm the diagnosis. Her father underwent the 10-day treatment, but his health didn’t improve.

Even after spending seven hours in the hospital, they sent him home. When the family discerned that the father’s health was deteriorating still, they took him back to the hospital.

This time, the prolonged stay lasted for 19 days ending in the loving father losing his life.

They were trusting, believing, and waiting for him to come out every day. The doctor even said that his health was getting better than before, and coming out. It was a Friday when the doctor said this.

By Sunday morning, the doctors were confident that he was coming out. Suddenly at the end of the day, they told Jordan’s family that he would not make it.

The next morning, her dad passed away.

As previously mentioned, they went to the hospital expecting a speedy recovery—just a few days. After all, they had seen many people going into the hospital and coming out in five days.

After she heard the news, she broke down in tears. Jordan woke up and ran to her mom’s room. Her mother said, “He’s gone,” Jordan just broke down and started screaming.

Cole was sleeping downstairs, and her mom went to wake him up. He didn’t believe it at first, but later when he knew, Cole didn’t talk to anyone for the entire day.
