Dec. 7- noon update- Erin said she's waiting for the doctor to come in to say if he can get the surgery for his lung. She said they had to put him under more sedation today so he's sleeping.

Here's her text (she said I can share):

>>Also pray for the weaning of the sedation meds.... this process sucks too!

Not sure about the surgery....

Jason "rolled" his eyes at me a little yesterday. He was the most "awake" I had seen him. He tried mouthing words to me while looking at me that I couldn't figure out. Then he moved his eyes away from me to the other side!!! Good thing I had my mask on.... I couldn't help but laugh! <<

Prayers needed tonight, Monday 12/6- Erin said that Jason had another chest tube placed yesterday. So she is praying that his left lung stays inflated today and tonight so they can do a little procedure tomorrow to help his lung.

She also said that "His vent settings are still low. His oxygen right now is 95-96!"

Good news on the GoFundMe fundraising problems -- Erin said she finally got the money that was in the account when GoFundMe shut it down for mentioning Ivermectin. So remember to direct people to the Christian decent site Give Send Go here https://givesendgo.com/JJEJ?

I checked in with the Jones family on Thanksgiving, knowing it would be so hard on Erin and the kids to have a holiday without Jason. Erin said it was hard but they tried to make the most of it with extended family. Continue praying.

I am so proud of Erin Jones! Just two weeks ago, I did the first interview with her and asked multiple times if she was sure she could handle the media and public backlash by using her real name. Well, today she's on Dallas TV as a spokeswoman for patients rights! The Lord is using her for His purposes, I have no doubt.

Nov. 23 - Erin texted “Jason is getting another chest tube right now. His oxygen has been on the lower side today. Hopefully this will help.”

I told her we will pray specifically for his lungs and more oxygen. I also told her she’s a wonderful devoted wife who demonstrates what the vows mean about in sickness and in health.

Can’t a patient and a family “go against medical advice”?

Yes but much harder when he’s depended on a ventilator to stay alive.

Thank you for answering. We all have questions about the mysterious world of hospitalized COVID patients. It’s really been kept under wraps.

Emily, are you still in contact with Dr. Bowden? I hoping the ignorance of cancel culture is not affecting her practice.

Yes we talk every day ! She’s doing great with huge support from patients. She sent out this e-mail to her patients yesterday, pasted below:

Dear BreatheMD Community,

First, my patient Jason Jones is stable but still in the ICU at Texas Huguley Hospital. He is scheduled to get a tracheotomy and a PEG tomorrow; his wife is hoping to transfer him to another facility soon after.

The request for medical exemption letters has sky-rocketed in my office. Going forward, I regret that I will not be able to write any more. The Texas Medical Board is investigating me for my efforts to give Jason Jones ivermectin, and I have many eager physicians ready to find another reason to report me.

What can you do?

- Contact Abbott and Paxton and demand they hold a 4th special legislative session. The executive order is not enough. Governor Abbott needs to call a 4th special legislative session to stop the mandates.

- Demand data transparency from Houston Methodist. Houston Methodist has branded itself as the leaders of COVID. Last spring, they started this mess by being the first hospital in the country to fire employees for not getting vaccinated. Although they list an abundance of COVID statistics on their website, they leave out important information on breakthrough cases and vaccine reactions.

Email Houston Methodist and ask:

- What % of your fully-vaccinated employees have gone on to get COVID?

- What % of your hospitalized patients with COVID are fully-vaccinated?

- What % of the patients you have vaccinated have had a serious reaction?

- Get monoclonal antibodies if you have COVID or if you have been exposed. If you have been in close contact with someone who has COVID, you are eligible to receive monoclonal antibodies as a preventative measure. The vaccine is contraindicated for 90 days following monoclonal antibodies.

Finally, consider standing up for what you believe in and quitting your job.

46% of Texans have decided not to get vaccinated. Our economy will come to a complete stand-still if 46% of the labor force walks off their job. Jobs are available for employees who are not vaccinated and more will come. I would love to hire an unvaccinated PCP to help me with COVID patients... please spread the word. If you are an employer willing to hire unvaccinated workers, please let me know, and I will send out a list in my next email.

Thank you again to everyone for all the kind words and support. If you are worried you are in this alone, rest-assured you are not - the problem is we have been silenced. The risk of verbal attacks, public shaming, and slander have made people reluctant to speak up. The more people speak up, the easier it is for all of us... so please say something! -Dr. Mary Talley Bowden

I asked Christina Adams, who is Erin's loyal and devoted best friend, to help explain what the Jones family is doing now since losing to the appeals court. Christina texted me this this afternoon:

"Looks like Jason coming home is becoming a much more likely reality now! Pressure and media attention has the hospital doing what they should have been doing all along, at least as far as trying to actively help him survive, albeit without the meds he requested…

"Anyway, if she can get him out of there and into a long term care facility, that would be a great step in the right direction! The successful trach and feeding tube placement today gets him so much closer to getting out of this horrible place!"

Monday, 11/22 2pm -- Erin's texts:

"He came through good. Today and maybe tomorrow will be for recovery. He is at 95 on the vent. His oxygen level is 99. He is still pretty well sedated from the surgery. It will be a process to keep weaning him from the sedation and vent.

"I am hoping that with the Tracheotomy he will be more comfortable and that will allow him to heal better.

"Hopefully I can move him to a long term care facility. They take people with trachs...and then they can help wean him off the vent.

"We still have a long journey ahead of us. I will celebrate every little win during the day!

God has been with us for every step. Leading and guiding us."

I am pleased that Deputy Jason is beginning to recover from this. I sincerely hope he improves to the point where he can return home and recover more there, way out of the reach of this particular branch of what I need to call Regne de la Terreur, because of the similarities I see in the Robespierre theme from Francais.

Monday, Nov. 22 11am-- I can't get over the progress in the past few days. It's truly a miracle. This is what Erin has texted this morning: "Jason is getting his Tracheotomy and peg tube for feeding right now."
