Hi thank you for visiting my just giving page.
On the 13th of December 2017 I gave birth to my son, and from the moment I got home I started to feel unwell. At first I had sickness and dihorea, then it was sweats and shivering. I spoke to midwives who all told me "it's a bug" this went on for 8 days and by this time I was hallucinating, my vision was blurry, i was breathless and had slurred speech. I phoned the doctor who also thought it was a bug, he arranged for me to have blood tests in 2 days time! By this point I had severe stomach pain.By the afternoon I had an appointment with the GP, i was short of breath, my blood pressure was dangerously low and I had a high temperature. I got put on IV antibiotics and oxygen and they called an ambulance, by this time they had said it was sepsis, i just remember thinking I'm going to die! I got taken to resuscitation where all the nurses and surgeons rallied around me trying to work out where the Sepsis was coming from. I had mottled skin on my stomach which I hadn't notice as id been using a hot water bottle this had masked it! They found on the CT scan that my uterus was enlarged and I had retained placenta. I had to have surgery to remove it and was in a high dependency unit for 6 days receiving 24 hour care and continued to have IV antibiotics and oxygen. I was away from my family for 7 days and missed Christmas with them, but I'm thankful to still be here today. I am very lucky, so I want to try and raise as much awareness as i possibly can and save lives.
Sepsis is the immune system’s overreaction to an infection or injury. Normally our immune system fights infection – but sometimes, for reasons we don’t yet understand, it attacks our body’s own organs and tissues. If not treated immediately, sepsis can result in organ failure and death. Yet with early diagnosis, it can be treated with antibiotics.
Sepsis kills more than 250,000 people a year in the UK alone!
I will be doing a 6km run in Swansea bay on the 30th of September 2018.
The money raised from will go to Morriston Emergency Department and will be used for education, equipment and supporting further sepsis awareness days and events in hospital and in the community.
Please donate for this worthy cause and help the fight against sepsis.
SEPSIS- SPOT EARLY, TREAT EARLY, SAVE LIVES
