This is the second year Adelin Fagan who has lived in OBGYN in Houston, Dr Adeline died early Saturday after a months-long battle with Covid-19.
Fagan had just started her second year in Houston when she fell ill, according to GoFundMe.
Although she worked primarily on baby delivery, Fegan rotated Covid patients receiving ER treatment, the post said.
Despite a history of asthma, upper respiratory tract infections, and pneumonia, her sisters shared with KHOU TV the job of “doing what she wants to do (Adeline).”
“She wants to get out of bed every morning and deliver babies and help women,” Maureen Fagan told KHOU.
Adeline Fagan arrived well on the morning of July 8, “excited to see the patients,” but on the evening of her 12-hour shift, she began to feel “out of the weather,” according to an initial message on her GoFundMe page.
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 could not stand it. According to her sister Maureen Fagan, She was 28 years old.
“The time when the world stopped for a moment will never be the same. “Our beautiful daughter, sister, friend, doctor, doctor Adeline Marie Feigan has died,” Fegan’s father, Brant, wrote in a post-Saturday morning.
Adeline Feigan’s sister, Natalie Feigan, told KHOU that “from the onset, her sister’s dream was to be a doctor.”
“She fought for it,” said Natalie Fagan. “She fought hard. She was learning a lot. She really learned a lot and got there. ”
The GoFundMe post went on to thank everyone who had supported Adeline Fagan. Since it was created on August 10, the GoFundMe page raised more than $160,000 by more than 3,000 donors.
“Even in this darkest of times, there are good people willing to share a piece of themselves for the sake of another,” Fagan’s father wrote.
