    Sorry for this, This seems to be a grave concern, that your daughter was not diagnosed with a necrotizing infection with sepsis. 

    Which hospital was this and you need to investigate why the doctors did not find the sepsis and treat it.

      We are still waiting to bury our girl , she passed 7 weeks ago , there is an ongoing investigation as to if the hospital failed her , I just can't get over she didn't have to die , it was the system that failed her

    This was an obvious case of hypotension/shock that was not given due consideration at the treatment center.

    Words cannot help how you must be feeling right now, this is truly disgusting, I would love to offer words of advice, but words fail me. I'm very sorry to hear of the  loss of your daughter, and your grandchild loosing his/ her mother. I'm afraid all I can offer is the sympathy I feel for both of you. But I wouldn't accept this had it been my daughter. I wish you well, my thoughts are with you and your grandchild.

    Patricia, I was just wondering how are you standing up to this horrible senseless death of your Daughter? Has the investigation come up with honest answers? Have you been able to put your Daughter into her resting place. It must be so difficult to get thru each day, luckily you'll have the love of a Grandchild, who you can share some many good memories of his/her Mummy!

    Has enough time gone by for you and the family to take your next steps to get some kind of compensation for the child and family? Or is it still too early to even cope with more than just getting out of bed each day?

    My heart is hurting for all of you, but my heart is also sending good warm vibes to you and yours! I'm sure that many people here would love to hear from you. Big Hugs, Susan

    There was a study done for sepsis in hich patients were given vitamin  intravenously as soon as they were admitted along with antibiotics,and 99% of them were saved. 

    Was this done in your daughter's case?

      I was given IV antibiotics immediately but have never heard about adding vitamins!

      Which kinda raises a question, obviously the antbibiotics saved me, what good would the vitamins do and how would they know what worked?

      I think I'll stick with the antbibiotics for now, the vitamins may be handy if the antbibiotics aren't working, is this new?

      Thanks Susan
