Life is too short

  1. Jan 23, 2009 #1
    A 20 year old Brazilian model with a bright future had her life turned upside down in just under a month. A rare blood infection compelled doctors to amputate her hands, feet, and removed two kidneys, and part of a stomach. She had 24 hours to live two weeks ago.

    I saw a tv show within the past few weeks of a woman that had gone to the emergency room and was diagnosed with kidney stones and sent home, and within a week was in the hospital, in a coma, and woke up to find that her hands and feet had been amputated,

    Really terrible.
