Salt Lake City-In Utah, where the number of COVID-19 cases remains high and the death toll is increasing, a family remembered a relative on Wednesday and died after contracting the disease.
In late October, when Patty and Roy Sandstrom, in their eighties, fell ill with COVID-19, their son felt tired most of the time.
However, when Sandstrom’s home quarantine work came to an end last week, the 53-year-old Michael took a bad turn.
Patty Sandstrom (Patty Sandstrom) said: “He slipped to the floor, Roy (Roy) can not lift him, so we called the paramedic.”
Roy Sandstrom (Roy Sandstrom) said that once Michael was seen in the intensive care unit of St. Mark’s Hospital on Saturday, it was obvious that his lungs were filled with fluid and were not functioning properly.
His mother said: “They said they couldn’t even get enough oxygen to resuscitate his lungs.” “Then they took him away.”
Michael (Michael) died on Sunday afternoon, his sister Laura Sandstrom Bascom took his hand.
His father recalled: “He only said two or three minutes,’Remember, remember, remember Michael’.”
“(Those) are his address to Laura,” his mother said.
The family called on the public to wear masks and follow all guidelines on Wednesday night to take COVID-19 seriously.
“Always (always) wear a good mask,” Roy Sandstrom said. “If they think this is a political move, please tell them that they should sit on our shoes for a while. They will never think of this again.”
The couple questioned whether the disease should replace their son with Down syndrome.
They said that Michael was healthy all his life.
Patty Sandstrom said: “We should be in the morgue.” “This is really surprising. We are 84 and 85 years old, and we are still here.”
“We should have been on the tablet,” Roy shrugged.
Sandstroms remembered that their son was an entertaining soul and was very satisfied with his singing.
Patty Sandstrom said: “He knows all the words, and he is so ridiculous. “It’s amazing! “
Roy said that his son is a “kind and gentle person” and his “angel”.
“I told everyone that they all agreed,” Michael’s father said. “He loves his father, which is why it’s hard for him to say goodbye.”
Bascom said her brother is very cute and sensitive.
She said: “You have to be cautious about talking about fighting around him or the like, because he will get angry.” “If someone is sad and crying, you will see tears start to fall.”
Nephew Cameron Cross (Nephew Cameron Cross) said that his uncle is the kind of person who can immediately make someone feel better.
Cross said: “His existence changed the lives of many people,”
Bascom said she was grateful to be with her after Michael I passed away.
Bascom said: “This is the hardest thing I have ever done in my life, but it is the most cherished thing I will have.”
Family members set up a GoFundMe page to help offset expenses and provide suitable services they hope to be “Mikey”.
