|Birth: ||Jul. 11, 1943|
|Death: ||Nov. 2, 2005|
My only sister has been in 3 nursing homes since 1997. She suffered with a mental breakdown in 1968, followed by Diabetes in 1983. Our mother, Florence Marie [Dupont] Schott died in 1985, Celia couldn't manage living alone and by 1987 was placed into a Rest Home in which she resided for 10 years. She suffered two strokes, the last left her unable to talk or walk.
Jan. 1st, 2005, a feeding tube was placed into her stomach due to her loosing her swallowing abilities. Eventually, she was able to start restorative feeding by mouth, was fed pureed foods and thickened liquids. On Monday Oct.31,2005, she had a high fever, bloodwork, xrays and other tests were taken. It was a complete shock to the nursing home staff and myself, that she died so sudden on Wednesday evening. I got a call from the Nursing Manager to come in that she wasn't doing good. When I arrived, she had just passed away. I wish I was there with her when she choked, maybe she would still be alive today. I don't blame the CNA for her death. I think she gave up the will to live and wanted to join our mom and dad.
Cause of death: Urosepsis
[I looked up this term "Urosepsis" and found this;]
"Bloodstream Infection from UTI[Urinary Tract Infection]
Urosepsis can occur in anyone, but elderly women are most at risk. Occasionally, life threatening situations develop from uncontrolled urosepsis, especially in patients who are diabetics or in immunocompromised states. Females are more commonly affected than males.
The illness progresses even further, with spread of the bacteria into the bloodstream."
May she rest in Holy Peace.
I loved her with all my heart.
