San Antonio Express-News: ‘The odds were not in his favor’: San Antonio man survives COVID-19 but pays a price. “Albert Bañuelos could sense the darkness. In his delirium, he saw things he doesn’t like to talk about. He doesn’t want to remember. ‘I had to get out of there,’ said Bañuelos, 43. ‘Your brain is on, but it’s playing a trick on you.’ He contracted the delta variant of the coronavirus in early September and was admitted to Methodist Hospital Northeast in Live Oak. As he struggled to breathe, doctors placed him in a medically induced coma. Machines pumped medicine into his body. For 4½ days, Bañuelos breathed through a tube inserted into his trachea and attached to a mechanical ventilator.”
