    So, she went to the Mayo clinic for some health issues, and she left sick as a dog and got on a plane?

    I'm confused.

    Not the time or the thread for a health care discussion

    Agreed

    Guys - with all due respect (and I like both of you) can this wait for another day?

    That's why it didn't continue. It wasn't meant to start any arguments.

    She wasn't feeling all that great when she left. She original went to get some of her autoimmune issues sorted out at the Mayo Clinic. While there, she got extremely sick and was feeling really bad, and was diagnosed with both the flu and pneumonia. They cleared her to go home, apparently, and she did. That's all I know. I will not ask and if Jay wants to tell me what ultimately happened, he may do so or he may never say anything and we may never know. And I'm ok with that too.

    People grieve in different ways. I was mad at the hospital for a while after my Dad died. People are saying nice things about a special woman, but she was young....too young....

    Sad all around.

    Not to go off the litigious deep end, but Mr. VR may want to speak with an attorney when the time is appropriate. If it went down as you say, and they released her for travel knowing that she had the flu and pneumonia on top of an existing auto-immune issue, there could possibly be some liability at Mayo's end.

    Not the time for that right now, but I'm sure he will want some answers down the road.

    I'm of the thought that they at a minimum suggested against it. And I wouldn't be surprised to find they made her sign some sort of waiver or release papers holding them not responsible.

    I have lots of experience with pneumonia, dad was hospitalized with it 8 times in 2 years. His hospital admissions were immediate.

    It really saddens me that an internet friend passed of such an easily curable infection if this was the case.

    My heart goes out to Jay and his family ... I'm still in denial over this.

    Sharon was a ray of sunshine in this place.

    Possible, but either way right now isn't the time for litigation, it's a time for grieving. I'd definitely be looking at having that discussion with an attorney down the road, though.

    FWIW, I've known a few people, including my Mother, who went into the hospital relatively healthy, got sicker while they were there, and died.

    I'm thinking it's just a possibility that exists when you stay in a building with a lot of other very sick people with communicable sicknesses, as much as such facilities attempt to keep the risk low. I've always viewed hospitals as the very definition of "sick" buildings, as they're always closed up with no fresh air from open windows/doors.

    I bet some of this has to do with the lack of rest one gets in a hospital. I've only had 2-3 overnight stays, and I remember the sleep quality being about like sleeping outside on the sidewalk (slight exaggeration). People are opening and closing doors, talking, walking around, turning lights on, etc. all hours of the night. Add to that strange sheets and pillow, wrong room temperature, strange food, different caffeine intake, etc.

    We have a situation going on at this very moment. My FIL is 80 and has bad lungs from smoking for 60+ years. He went in for pneumonia 3-4 days ago. Sounded like he was about to die. Just as quick as he could get strong enough to voice his wishes, he checked himself out AMA and went home and got in the bed to get some rest. Not joking. My wife has driven there (four hours) and is trying to get him to go back in the hospital.
