Snapshots Into Our Nightmare

The Nightmare of Rob Skiba’s Last 40 Days of Hell

September 3rd is the one-year anniversary of Rob’s admittance to a hospital in Plano, Texas, where he spent his final days fighting for his life.

As I continue to write my soon-to-be-published first-hand account of the 40 days of terror we experienced at the hands of a corrupt medical system—I felt it was time to begin sharing with you a few of the details of our harrowing struggle with the industrial medical complex.

I will be posting one representative snapshot image per day to provide you with a glimpse of the frustrations, trauma, and anguish Rob and I endured up to that final day on October 13, 2021, when I needlessly lost the love of my life due to the hospital and doctors’ unwavering, relentless, and deadly protocols for profit.

You are invited to view the images below and walk with me each day as I share images designed to represent the anguish, trauma, and despair of the situation Rob and I faced at the hands of the medical establishment in simple yet profound images designed to prepare you for the complete story—which will be told when I have completed and published my coming book.

You deserve to know the truth, and my goal in putting forth this effort over the next 40 days and in writing my vivid story—which will reveal every detail of the horror we suffered—is to help save the lives of others who might otherwise have not been wise to the malicious plans of U.S. hospitals and their staff.

As they say, “to be forewarned is to be forearmed”—and if the truth of our situation can save lives I will be comforted in knowing there was a larger purpose behind all of this and that the loss of Rob’s life was not in vain.

According to Texas attorney Jerri Ward . . .

“CMS [the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services] has granted ‘waivers’ of federal law regarding patient rights. Specifically, CMS purports to allow hospitals to violate the rights of patients or their surrogates with regard to medical record access, to have patient visitation, and to be free from seclusion.

She further notes that “rights do not come from the hospital or CMS and cannot be waived, as that is the antithesis of a ‘right.’ The purported waivers are meant to isolate and gain total control over the patient and to deny patient and patient’s decision-maker the ability to exercise informed consent.”

Luke 18:8, “I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of man comes, shall He find faith on the earth?
