A baby boy in Washington state died of a large blood clot after a hospital gave him a blood transfusion from a general stockpile instead of from an unvaccinated donor, as his parents requested. The tragedy comes as more and more people are understanding the special danger that comes from using blood donated by Covid vax victims.
Soon after baby Alexander was born on January 3, 2022, his parents Cornelia Hertzler and Ron Bly discovered not only that his esophagus and trachea were abnormally connected, but that he had a heart condition — Double Outlet Right Ventricle (DORV), in which oxygenated and deoxygenated blood are mixed — which required surgery for long-term survival.
In order to undergo neonatal heart surgery, Alexander was airlifted to Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane, Washington, a Catholic hospital where his parents made clear to the hospital that they “did not want any blood transfusions from the blood bank” because they “were worried about blood from vaccinated donors causing blood clots.”
Bly explained to Louisa Clary of the Vaccine Safety Research Foundation on Thursday that their caution was provoked at least in part by the death of a friend who was in her 60s and was “very healthy,” but who “had a heart attack three days after getting the Moderna shot.”
After repeatedly telling the parents that using unvaccinated blood from a directed donor would be very difficult and “very expensive,” the “hospital finally conceded, the day before” Alexander’s first operation, “that all the family needed to do was fill out a few forms to accept and utilize blood from specific donors,” reported Brian Wilkins, editor in chief of The COVID Blog.
“Turns out, the entire process was relatively easy and inexpensive,” said Hertzler. However, as Bly pointed out to Clary, the hospital still “kept delaying and delaying on” providing the “paperwork to get directed donor blood.”
Thus, the paperwork was not processed in time for the parents to use the unvaccinated blood for a transfusion by the time of Alexander’s second operation. While the surgery itself did not require blood, Dr. Eleane Beadle determined that Alexander needed a blood transfusion the next day due to low hemoglobin levels.
“Instead of waiting a few more days for the blood we had donated to be fully processed and available,” the doctor used blood from a general blood bank for the transfusion, Bly told Clary.
Wikins has pointed out that Washington “had a 70% fully-vaccinated population by February 1, 2022, with 79% receiving at least one injection,” and so “there was a near 80% chance Alexander got vaxxed blood.”
The doctor “found the blood clot within a few hours after he got the transfusion,” Hertzler told Clary on Thursday.
Hertzler said that while previously, the doctors had told them that “blood clots are very rare” in a case like Alexander’s, after he got a blood clot, they said, “Well, this happens. But…it’s something a blood thinner can fix.”
Hertzler believes that if the clot had been “normal,” then blood thinners would have helped dissolve it. She said that, “given our understanding” of the findings of abnormal clots in the vaxxed deceased, “we know that it’s not a normal blood clot.”
