nurse gets strange call from jackson just four days before death

According to Michael’s nutritionist, he was very distraught about having insomnia and had asked  repeatedly for sedatives that he was warned could be harmful.

Cherilyn Lee, a registered nurse says the singer asked her for Diprivan, a powerful sedative, numerous times.

According to Lee, she received a call from Jackson only four days before his death with a very dangerous condition.

On June 21, she was contacted by someone on Jackson’s staff.

“He called and was very frantic and said, `Michael needs to see you right away.’ I said, ‘What’s wrong?’ And I could hear Michael in the background …, ‘One side of my body is hot, it’s hot, and one side of my body is cold. It’s very cold,'” Lee said.

“I said, `Tell him he needs to go the hospital. I don’t know what’s going on, but he needs to go to the hospital … right away.”

“At that point, I knew that somebody had given him something that hit the central nervous system,” she said, adding, “He was in trouble Sunday and he was crying out.”

Unfortunately, Michael did not go to the hospital that night.

Lee affirms that  Michael was only seeking a resolution for severe sleep deprivation.

“He wasn’t looking to get high or feel good and sedated from drugs,” she said. “This was a person who was not on drugs. This was a person who was seeking help, desperately, to get some sleep, to get some rest.”

Michael had also been living with physical pain for years, due to the 1984 incident where his scalp was severely burned during a Pepsi commercial shoot. And if Michael had lived and completed his upcoming This Is It tour, the performances would have strained his aging body.

The Incredible Hulk” star Lou Ferrigno, who’s been working out with Jackson for the past several months, said Jackson was focused on health.

“When he was with me, he wasn’t different. He wasn’t stoned. He wasn’t high. He wasn’t being aloof or speedy. Never talked about drugs,” Ferrigno said. “I’ve never seen him take drugs. He was always talking about nutrition.”

Ms. Lee was remained so adamant about not giving Michael the drug Diprivan because of it’s usage for inducing unconsciousness in patients. In other cases, patients have used the drug to commit suicide. And taking large doses of the medication could cause a person to stop breathing.

“An overdose that stops breathing can result in a buildup of carbon dioxide, causing the heart to beat erratically and leading to cardiac arrest, “said Dr. John Dombrowski, a member of the board of directors of the American Society of Anesthesiologists.

“I had an IV and when it hit my vein, I was sleeping. That’s what I want,” Lee said Jackson told her.

“I said, ‘Michael, the only problem with you taking this medication’ — and I had a chill in my body and tears in my eyes three months ago — ‘the only problem is you’re going to take it and you’re not going to wake up,” she recalled.

At that point, Michael said that another doctor told him that the drug was perfectly OK for him to take… As long as there was someone there to wake him up.

Lee also spent the night monitoring Michael and his sleep disorder.

Comedian and Jackson family friend Dick Gregory believes Michael insommia stemmed from the child molestation charges that he faced in 2005. Soon after the trial, he was called by Michael’s parents to help because the star’s health had deteriorated a great deal.

Gregory said Jackson wasn’t eating or drinking at the time and, after he was persuaded by Gregory to undergo testing, ended up hospitalized for severe dehydration.

“But Jackson obviously was healthy enough to withstand the level of medical scrutiny needed to insure him for the upcoming high-stakes London concerts,” Gregory said. “That you don’t trick,” he said of the exams.

Lee says she decided to speak out about Michael’s condition because of the media’s allegations that he was addicted to drugs and not a good parent.

“I think it’s so wrong for people to say these things about him,” she said. “He was a wonderful, loving father who wanted the best for his children.”
