On August 2, 2011 I didn’t show up for child support court. On April 15th, 2015 I had just finished cutting my grass and had just exited the shower, when the door bell rang. I answered the door, a St. John parish sheriff asked if I was Joseph Caro? I replied that I was. He said he had a warrant for my arrest from New Orleans. I knew it was about not showing up for court. I told him to come in and I would put on my pants and shoes. We entered my garage while he confirmed that New Orleans indeed wanted me. We chatted he explained that they usually ignored civil warrants but that his boss gave him a stack at the start of his shift and told him to hunt them down, eventually it was confirmed. so he said that he would not cuff me and that I was to just get in the back seat. I was transported to the St. John jail processed and awaited New Orleans pickup. Two sheriffs’ from Orleans Parish arrived and I said that “I would submit to their arrest. They cuffed me in front and we made the 40 minute ride to OPP Orleans Parish Prison. I MUST GO INTO DETAIL BECAUSE I BELIEVE GOD IS IN THE DETAILS.
I was processed into central Lock-up which took 6 hours, then assigned to tent 5, since Katrina temporary jails have been set up in tents because the feds has condemned portions of the OPP prison, such as the house of detention and parts of the old prison. So I entered T-5 chose my rack and settled in for my 90 day stay. My celly was a demon named Columbus Hudson, a smaller than average person with a large complex. I came to find out he was a pedophile and was facing 40 years to life for his latest escapades. From the moment I talked to him my spirit came alive and I knew more about him than he knew about himself. Like he had cancer and had only 2 and a half years to live. I knew this to be true because a voice as clear as day told me in the still of the night. I was told to feed him because I was unable to eat the food. Every time I ate the food I would throw up. D’, the food was slop, unfit for human consumption. So I fasted for 30 days, on the 32nd day I started having umbilicus pain, it was persistent. So I went to sick call on the 22 of may. I Was interviewed by a female physician, whom seemed more interested in giving me an Ekg which she could make money for her company- than dealing with my stated problems, vomiting umbilicus pain, nausea, after I left her office and commented to another inmate that this was the first time in my life I had went to a doctor and left without relief. She left her office and went to the nurse and told her to give me a anti-nausea medication. Which I took, which did not work. so Saturday and Sunday I suffered on Monday the 25th a nurse showed up at the gate and called me out and gave me a bottle of Citrate of Magnesia and stated that I had to drink it all in her presence. Which I did.
2 hours later I started defecating blood and the pain in my gut became unbearable. This is where Columbus went to a guard named C. Boudreaux. and told her what was going on with me. Later that night I started throwing up blood as well as defecating blood. In the A.M. I dragged myself to the gate and demanded to be taken to university hospital(LSUH) for treatment. A nurse showed up and gave me a specimen cup and said” I could not be taken to the hospital until I gave a stool sample.” Just as she finished this asinine statement another nurse showed up and said she had brought a wheel chair could I make it to the door? She helped me to the wheel chair rolled me to the medical trailer and started to do a work up. I asked to use the bathroom, as I entered I started throwing up and defecation all over the room. she came into the room to find me naked on the floor in the only position I could feel comfortable in the fetal position, the cool floor felt good. I asked if she had enough for her stool sample. she smiled and said it was more than enough and that she had called the ambulance. I was transported to university hospital (LSUH) I was evaluated in the emergency room and moved to TICU was given 4 units of blood and proton pump Inhibiters and Mylanta, as you know the human body only has 12 units normally, I stayed until the 28th when I was sent back to the jail. I was not aware that I had a ulcer. so, I returned to T5 feeling better but still “torn-up from the floor up”. On may 29th at approx 7:00 pm while role call I felt he urge so I went to the latrine and defecated blood again only this timeI fell to the floor and passed out throwing up blood. when I awakened Columbus was wiping blood from my face and another guy named Songy was kneeling by my side. I looked up to see one of the male guards standing over me with a pair of handcuffs. I said” why are you standing over me with handcuffs? do I look like I am going to run away. The other guard was rank and kept asking me if I could put my orange on. These idiots offered nor rendered no assistance to my medical condition. Columbus and songy picked me up off the floor carried me out of T5 to a waiting wheelchair. I was wheeled to med trailer where this same idiot nurse did a work up. I was not put on oxygen until I made reference to my dwindling level of awareness.I was transported to university hospital evaluated in the emergency room and promptly taken to the surgery center where angio-plasty was performed. They went into my right femoral artery to my gut and put a clip on the artery supplying the ulcer, moved me to medICU, gave me 2 units of for a total of 6 units, half my blood volume had to be replaced. The Doctor said the volume of red blood cell as opposed to white blood cells had fallen to 6 normal volume is 10. so I stayed in Med ICU until June the 3rd when again I was returned to the Jail. I was returned with specific instructions..a routine of 3 antibiotics for 2 weeks then a return trip to university, 2 of the antibiotics were available in their pharmacy, they kept telling me that the third had to be ordered. I spent a week in medical unit D2 awaiting this medication. on june 15th I was released.
On the bottle of Citrate of Magnesia it is clearly stated that if vomiting, nausea and abdominal pain is present the use of this product is contra indicated.
This doctor was negligent for not investigating my stated symptoms which would have precluded this whole episode.
This demon in Columbus, which has lived for many lifetimes and inhabited many soul and ushered many to hell. I wonder if God had Columbus Show compassion for me and keep trying to reach Christ is his atonement. He was sent to a mental institution for evaluation, this is the only way he can avoid being billed a HOF(Habitual Offender Felon) . His compassion shows that God was working in him.
