Thanksgiving morning my mom was admitted to the hospital. She had a very serious infection in her blood that sent her to icu. Her heart rate was to high, low BP, low pulse ox, and high fever. She is 81, with copd,chf, dememtia and pd. The infection started in her bladder then went to her blood. She just got out of the icu yesterday. But she is so weak she can barely talk, she won't eat, she's crying alot and she looks funny in her eyes. I know she is lucky to be alive. But I am wondering if she will ever fully recover. Does anyone have any experience with someone being septic?
