Write-up: Shot (vaccine) given 7/6/07. 7/7/07 Somewhat not responding to conversation. 7/8/07 - Very sleepy, hard time answering questions, difficulty getting out of chair - as the next 20 days progressed, she experienced feeling of weakness, some facial droop, swallowing difficulties, unable to answer questions (stare, then a shrug [I don''t know]), confusion, incontinence, walk very slowly, occasional dragging of foot. Just before she died (approx 17 hours earlier), she described some things that she did at rehab. Her descriptions were rather odd - after she said them, she realized they sounded odd and stated she thought she must be going crazy - she knew something wasn''t right. She went from being able bodied, alert, communicative, capable person to unable to do simple personal tasks. An otherwise healthy person does not have a rapid change as this one without a reason. All tests run came back perfectly normal - 3 Cat scans showed nothing wrong. Blood work - that of a 50 year old. No evidence of stroke. Drs - both primary MD and Hospital staff said vaccine couldn''t have done it. Symptoms occurred w/in 24 hours of getting vaccine. 9/25/07 Received medical records & death certificate from pcp which reveals COD as cardio-respiratory arrest with atrial fibrillation, mitral regurgitation, HTN, hypothyroid, anemia as contributing factors.
