Alfonzia Jackson Jr., 35, of Jefferson County, was detected with the extremely infectious B. 1.1.7 variant previously last week while fighting for his life at the state’s UAB.
On Tuesday night, his spouse, Ashley Jackson, revealed on Facebook that Alfonzia had actually passed away.
” Lord this day has actually been hard,” Ashley posted around 9pm.
” I would not want this on anybody as I said good bye to my incredible hubby.
” Our girls are going to really miss you, you were a remarkable father and I will keep your memory alive through them and they will constantly remember you.
” You are now our guardian Angel and you are at peace, rest on my fantastic hubby till we reunite.”
She also posted a psychological homage featuring pictures and videos of the household, set to the tune, I’ll Be Missing You.
Ashley said the couple had no idea how he contracted the infection.
” My hubby just went to work and house,” she stated.
” Gas station here and there. Not nothing like heading out and having fun, just a diligent male.”
Alfonzia was confessed to the healthcare facility with COVID signs and shortness of breath on January 22.
Right after, his heart started to fail and his kidneys were harmed.
He underwent surgical treatment and was placed on makers that do the work of the heart and the lungs for him.
Quick tests revealed a negative medical diagnosis for COVID-19, but after surgery to eliminate heart failure, a PCR test revealed that Alfonzia did have the UK variant.
” My spouse, we were speaking about whatever getting better, and to see him go from that to being on a breathing maker is hard,” Ashley told AL.com on January 31.
” I need to keep strong for my girls, so when I get overly emotional I have to go to the garage to weep and yell.”
The Jefferson County Health Department later called Ashley to tell her that Alfonzia had the U.K. version.
Alfonzia was put on a ventilator in the days prior to he died.
A GoFundMe page initially set up to pay for medical expenses has raised over $131,000 for the household so far.
