I have been with my employer over ten years now. Upon starting my job here I was welcomed by a number of very wonderful people. Among these people were a *couple* that eventually married and moved onto other jobs. Their names are Mike and Sandy. I have had casual contact with both of these fine people since their departure. When I arrived at work this morning I was given some devastating news. Sandy passed away this weekend unexpectedly. From what I have been told it appears she succumbed to blood poisoning. Sandy was a very talented woman with personality traits that I very much admired and this news came as quite a shock to me. From what I'm hearing Sandy exhibited no symptoms indicating a serious illness of any sort. Actually she attended an office party Friday night and was feeling fine and Sunday morning she passed. The only indication we're getting is that Sandy was on antibiotics for a tooth infection and finished a ten day prescription about two weeks ago. Web MD doesn't have too much info for me to go on at this point as portions of their site are down so I am wondering if anyone knows what the common causes of blood poisoning are. Could the previous tooth infection be the cause of Sandy's tragic death? I am literally in shock and deeply saddened by these events. Looking for an explanation for events like this is fruitless I know but I am just trying to figure out how someone's life can be extinguished so quickly and with no warning in this manner.
