The first photo was last Christmas the following month our son died 💔.... all of his presents still in his room hardly touched , his new clothes hardly warn ... things don’t matter time does ... who knows what’s around the corner ... I’m so lucky to have been the kind of mum where time was everything & still is with my other children.
Knowing one of the symptoms of sepsis is the feeling you are going to die breaks my heart.. 💔 Dylan felt like he was dying & he suffered terribly. Helpless we were as he slipped through our fingers ... his little life flashed before my eyes as he lay helpless in intensive care .... no more mike stones , no girlfriends , no holidays , no wedding day , no passing his driving test & driving with his dad, no more football but most of all no more I love you mum & dad & us saying back love you more ...Tears will always fall when I think of what he went through ... some kind of medieval preventable death 💔
Dylan a true brave boy our boy who I wish was walking through the door tonight after school... I would be here waiting like normal always ... this is so hard .... & like other sepsis warriors I don’t write this for sympathy it’s painful I could lock myself away , run away , give up but .... I write this with passion from my heart to save lives in my sons memory.
Stay well this winter & be sepsis aware
What are the signs of sepsis you should never ignore?
If you, a loved one, or in the case of medical professionals their patient, feels "severely sick", doesn't appear to be themselves and shows any of the following symptoms, sepsis should be suspected:
* loss of appetite
* fever and chills
* difficult or rapid breathing
* rapid heart rate
* low blood pressure
* low urine output
If a person is suffering these symptoms and they are thought to have suffered an infection - pneumonia, abdominal infection, urinary infection, or a wound - sepsis is likely.
Think sepsis act fast , talk about it !!! Thank you xx
