This woman’s story is one of those that doesn’t fit into one’s head. It’s hard to imagine what she’s been through, and it’s even harder to understand how she managed to get everything she enjoys now.
When 7,5-month pregnant woman came into the hospital with sharp pain complaints, the doctors saw nothing. In 2 weeks, she already had a 103-degree fever and contractions that ended not that happily. Carol gave birth to a baby girl Safiya via C-section but ended up blind, in a coma, and with amputated limbs herself.
On June 10, 2008 I gave birth to my second daughter, Safiya, seven weeks early. Unfortunately I would not meet her for 20 days because my body was fighting a serious blood infection from strep pneumonia. My infection was so serious that it caused me to go into sepsis and the only way to save my life was to amputate both my feet, my left hand and my right ring finger. I was going to have to fight for my life if I wanted to survive. And I did. Forever grateful, Carol #sepsis #tripleamputee #blind #forevergrateful #caroljdecker #survivor #strepneumonia #fightforlife
