A Christian man whose wife won a lawsuit to have ivermectin administered to treat his COVID dies after the second dose. Wife says God and her ain’t on speaking terms right now.
Keith Smith, 52, died Sunday evening, a week after receiving his first dosage of the controversial medicine ivermectin, after his wife had gone to court to have his Covid infection treated with it.
Smith had been at UMPC Memorial for almost three weeks and had been in a medically induced coma on a ventilator in the hospital’s intensive care unit since Nov. 21. On Nov. 10, he was diagnosed with Covid.
Darla, his wife, who refused to say whether or not her husband was vaccinated had gone to court to force UPMC to treat her husband with ivermectin, an anti-parasitic medicine not approved for COVID-19 therapy.
The judgment by York County Court Judge Clyde Vedder on Dec. 3 did not require the hospital to treat Smith with the ivermectin, but it did enable Darla to have it administered by an outside physician. Smith’s health worsened after two dosages and the doctor had to stop the medication.
Darla posted on the website, “Tonight, about 7:45 p.m., my dear husband breathed his last breath.”Darla and their two boys, Carter and Zach, were at his bedside when he died. Darla mentioned that they had time to talk with Smith before he died both individually and as a family. She wrote, “My boys are very strong.” “They are my pillar of strength.”
Keith Smith was a passionate follower of Jesus Christ and a devout Christian. His wife narrated an experience she had on a vacation to Baltimore. As Darla and her boys went past a homeless man on the sidewalk, Smith stopped to chat with him and after hearing his tale, handed the man some money.
Darla chided Smith for it claiming the man was only going to spend the money on drugs, but Smith explained that the man had indicated he wanted something to eat and that Smith wanted to help him, a display of his faith.
However, her husband’s death has shaken Darla’s faith. “If heaven is real, as God should be real – but He chose not to reveal Himself, and I will never, ever understand why – then I know Smith is at peace,” Darla wrote.
“And God? It remains to be seen, ” she wrote. “At the moment we are not on speaking terms and we may never be again. I don’t know. We are where we are,” she added.
