Last December, I became sick, passing out, and convulsions, and my husband called 911,

I was admitted in to the hospital in my town. After 4 days, they started running all kinds of tests, it wasn’t until my husband talked to the doctor, and ordered a CT scan and ray that when they found an infection in my lungs. Food or liquid got into my lungs and started the infection, which led to sepsis. I was life-flighted to a bigger hospital on the ventilator for 6 days, and a week in the hospital, it was so bad, that it  caused CHF (congestive heart failure). I’m slowing getting better, but still at risk of it happening again!
