On March 10th, 2021, Stephanie De Garay, along with her husband Patrick wrote the following on their Facebook page regarding their 12 year old daughter, Please pray for Maddie, she has been having a long list of neurological and gastrointestinal issues from a rare adverse reaction she had to the second dose from the COVID vaccine trial she is in. Right now she is in the hospital because of a bowel obstruction that was cleared and also being unable to swallow liquids or solids. She hasn’t been able to eat or drink without throwing up for over a week. Tomorrow she has an Upper GI scheduled that she will have to swallow 6oz of liquid which as of right now seems impossible. We need this for the doctors to understand how her muscles are reacting. If she is unable to eat soon she will have to have an NG tube placed which she did not do well with earlier this week. I believe in prayer, please pray she is able to swallow liquids tomorrow so that her body can get the nutrients it needs and so the doctors can begin to figure out why her body is reacting this way. On top of this she has extreme pain in her back, neck, head and abdomen along with numbness in her legs and arm. She has an MRI of her head and spine scheduled on 3/16.Please pray for her to heal so she can be the energetic 12 year old who loves hanging with friends and learning at school. I can’t stand watching her wither away each day. NOTE: she has not been unblinded but I am 99.99% confident she got the vaccine and not the placebo since everything started about 12 hours after she got the second dose on 1/20/21 and has gotten progressively worse since then.
