Beer described how after he first emerged from sedation, he was told that his situation had deteriorated and he would have to be sedated again: “Within an hours the situation deteriorated and the doctor told me: “I’m sorry, we woke you up but we have to sedate you again, the situation is difficult. I said goodbye to my family, it was very difficult. Of course I told my family that everything was ok and that I’m strong, but in my mind I said to myself: Eli, you’ve got wonderful children, I want to see them but the chances are low that I will ever see them again. They sedated me and I was in another world. They made every effort to save me, including going as far as President Trump to get authorization to use a drug which hasn’t been approved.”
