Tessa Olk


After giving birth to my beautiful baby girl, I was rushed back to the hospital only one day after being discharged with hospital related pneumonia, severe cystitis infection, as well as cellulitis and enterococcus bacteria in my blood. I was in the hospital for a total of 10 days and as a result of all the treatments I suffered from c-diff for 2 years after. But I am alive, my baby girl is healthy. sadly lots of complication still and severe PTSD but I’m alive and my baby girl is healthy and happy.
