Family Confirms Caleb Wallace Has Hours Left to Live


SAN ANGELO, TX –– While the story of Caleb Wallace has garnered national attention, his family in San Angelo is facing the devastating reality that the father of four only has a few hours left to live.

Caleb's wife, Jessica Wallace, shared the heartbreaking update on the GoFundMe account set up to help their family through these hard times.

"Caleb won’t make it much longer. He will be moved to comfort care tomorrow and I will get to be there with him until it’s his time to return to our father in heaven," said Wallace. "I appreciate everyone all the good and the bad. You all have the right to feel the way you feel as Caleb once fought for his beliefs. He was an imperfect man but he loved his family and his little girls more than anything."

"To those who wished him death, I’m sorry his views and opinions hurt you. I prayed he’d come out of this with a new perspective and more appreciation for life. I can’t say much more than that because I can’t speak for him."

Caleb is the father to three young daughters, ages 5, 3, and 1. The couple is expecting their fourth daughter next month.

Has he tried taking the horse medicine yet? What an idiot.

Edit: I was right he DID try to take horse medicine,

"Mrs. Wallace, who is pregnant with the couple’s fourth child, told the San Angelo Standard-Times that when her husband first felt ill, he took a mix of vitamin C, zinc, aspirin and ivermectin — a drug typically used to treat parasitic worms in both people and animals that has been touted as a coronavirus treatment but was recently proved to be ineffective against the virus."

Me, I generally support much of what you say, but not this.  The man is going to die, and while I loathe some of his past actions I see little benefit in hurling insults at him at this point.

Expat, most of the time you and I are on opposite sides of the fence and have been for years. You may not remember but, a few years ago I stated that I thought you were an honorable man. Today I stand by that.

Guys, please realize that this fight is so much more than D vs R. There is such damage done by this false dilemma. When one becomes so entrenched that they lose all compassion, it’s time to take a step back.

Matt, neither Expat nor I was discussing our position on politics.

CGM5.. and you as well, amigo.  

For those who may misinterpret what we said earlier, CGM5 and I were not addressing politics but rather the looming death of a man who, as are we all, is flawed.  Though Caleb's stance on many things differs radically from mine I will take no joy from his death and see no gain in heaping  abuse on him.  I choose instead to hope for the best for the family he leaves behind.

Before the vaccinations became available my wife and I had Covid, and although we were hospitalized we did not require intubation and were released after five days.  It seems through sheer luck, or perhaps the grace of God, we were lucky.  We learned through that experience this beast is not to be taken for granted, and we have since had the J&J vaccine.  We will also get the booster when it becomes available.

I know y’all weren’t on this comment thread. I have seen so much politically driven name calling, bashing and harsh words in other threads though. My whole point is that these political ideologies are manufactured by media, which is merely a propaganda machine. They have pitted good people against each other based on a letter behind a name. There is a bigger fight, a real fight behind all of this and that is my call to y’all on here. Move beyond the D vs R facade and start to see what is really happening. 

Heartless. You fool, your political ideology has even blinded you to basic human compassion. I know you think I’m a religious wack job but you really need to get out of your box. I shared some things with BLANCO9 here:

that I pray you at least look into. You have been brainwashed by the media you ingest, as I have said before. You are so engrained that you’ve lost your humanity.

"What is is you guys always say? When you have to resort to insults you have already lost? Yeah. "

guess you forgot you said that

ME Someone, Sat, 08/28/2021 - 17:37

Lost what? That refers to a debate or argument.

Again, you are heartless. I see you edited your response. Might as well have completely deleted it, hypocrite. Good job, you were right, he chose a different form of treatment. I hope you feel justified in your previous comments.
