Jason Milam

Survivor

On January 27, 2019, I went into cardiac arrest due to septic shock. I was life flighted to a regional hospital in Atlanta, Georgia. I was on life support for three weeks. This was due to strep throat that settled in my lungs, causing streptococcal pneumonia. (Sepsis and Strep Throat, Sepsis and Pneumonia)

Sepsis caused my thyroid and my gallbladder to die. I have an underlying autoimmune disease called Addison’s disease. (Sepsis and Impaired Immune System) Because of that, the medication I take suppressed the symptoms of strep throat, so I never knew I had it. I suffered a cardiac arrest due to the sepsis. It’s been one year and almost four months, and I’m doing well. I beat the odds, with God in the midst of all.
