Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)

Comment from: YS, Male (Caregiver) Published: April 28

My wife thought there was nothing wrong with her except for a slight fever which she passed off as hot flashes. I found her lying on the bathroom floor. I took her to the emergency room at the hospital and found that she had urinary tract infection (UTI) with sepsis.
