Crissy loses her husband after 25 years of marriage. His husband passed away because of complications from a tick bite.
Crissy is now sharing her story in hopes of assisting other people who find themselves in similar dilemmas.
She has spoken powerfully about the sadness she feels when she realizes that her teenage son will not have someone to teach him about the birds and bees or even how to drive.
She said that her husband was a man who was all about helping his family. Now that he is gone, the family feels lost and alone. To make matters even worse, Crissy shared the last moments of her husband.
She said that over the course of their marriage, he hardly ever even got sick. However, he started to have a fever after the tick bite took place.
Tick Bite Effects
Crissy knew that something had to be wrong. She took him to the emergency room immediately. His husband is sweating so much, that’s why she was forced to change his bedsheets and his clothes.
However, Crissy’s husband was diagnosed with a kidney infection and given antibiotics. Sadly, this incorrect diagnosis cost him his life.
The illness progressed quickly. It only took 12 hours for him to go from cracking jokes to being hooked up to machines that were assisting him.
It took two days in the hospital for her husband to receive the correct diagnosis, but it was simply too late. The fact that he did not have a spleen that allowed the illness to progress even more quickly.
This is an absurd tragedy, and Crissy is doing her best to make sure that her husband did not die in vain. She is educating the rest of the world about what took place.
Education is the key in instances like this. Who knows what could have happened here if his husband received the correct diagnosis from the very start?
