Lillybluebell123 I meet some of survivors of both, who fully recovered after this. I know it is scary to see your loved one so sick but talk to her and be there for her. Hearing you can help her wake up when she will be ready. She has sedation so she is not in pain and is "resting" to get her strength back. It is a hell for the whole family. We are going through similar situation (excluding sepsis, but with several other conditions) with my dad for close to 3 weeks. Stay strong and always be positive. Wish your mom a speedy recovery.

lillybluebell, it’s the toughest thing ever to watch your own mum fighting such a battle. My mum too had double pneumonia from two different strains of swine flu and sepsis. She’s 73. It took her 2+ weeks of induced coma, 4 weeks in ICU and another 2 months before she could leave the hospital. All up 1/4 of the year 2018 was spent in hospital and a few times they just weren’t sure if she could pull through. With a lot of rehab and therapy, she is back on her feet. I want to let you know that there is hope and even when some days are tougher than others, don’t give up. Keeping you and her in my thoughts.
