In August of this year I went to bed just tired from cleaning my dad’s house for him. They said I stayed in bed the whole next day and night and they found me unresponsive the next morning.

They called an ambulance and I was placed in the critical care unit from the emergency room.  They didn’t have a bed in icu at the time. I woke up a few hours later. When I tried to talk, my words were scrambled but that got better over the next few days so I started on them to let me go home and they would say I was very, very sick. They let me go home on oxygen and antibiotics, I was weak but ok. It was when I looked at my medical records that I found out I had pneumonia, severe sepsis, septic shock, COPD exacerbation, anoxic brain injury. I’m ok but I don’t sleep well even with my meds because I’m afraid in will happen again. I give God and a fast diagnosis all the credit ?
