” It struck me when I was standing beyond her room with the chaplain and Amandas mother was in the room with her that her mom was informing her bye-bye. I understood it was coming,” Billy said.

” She was having problem breathing, so I took her to the ER in Dickson,” Billy stated.

Billy says Amanda was hesitant to get immunized while pregnant however was preparing to get the shot after giving birth.

Doctors carried out an emergency C-section and infant Nolan survived, but Amandas health continued declining, and she was flown to a trauma center in Virginia.

On Monday, she passed away.

Billy states Amanda hammered out high fevers, mastitis, a tracheotomy, germs in her blood, a collapsed lung and a blood transfusion.

” Every healthcare facility in your area was at capacity. We were attempting to discover a healthcare facility that had an available bed that might treat her with ECMO,” Billy said.
