9/15/2013: Caller states that her father applied product around his trees on Aug. 16 or 17. The caller states that the wind had blown diluted product back on him but she doesn't know when he washed off. An unspecified period of days later he developed chills. An unspecified period of days after developing chills, he developed dyspnea. After another 5 to 7 days, he eventually saw his heart surgeon who immediately admitted him to a hospital on Sept. 3. Due to his lack of oxygenation, he was intubated and has been on a ventilator since. There has been a series of test run (type of test and results unk) and a number of specialist (pulmonologist, infectious disease ect) but there is no diagnosis at this time although they stated that he had pneumonia. The patient had a history of cardiac arrhythmias for which he was recently treated with cardiac ablation therapy and the placement of a pacemaker. The caller was not able to provide a date on which this was done but she knows that it was sometime in August.
