Urinary tract infection leads to untimely & horribly painful death of rising young model from Brazil

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is not an uncommon organism. The dolts on TV have been reporting this as a "rare" bacterial infection and that is very BAD information. For God's sake ladies, if you think you might have a UTI, go and get thee to treatment right away. Don't try to wait it out. Get some pills and kill those little bastards while the infection is in it's early stages and easier to control.

This poor young lady died a miserable death. Both of her hands and feet were amputated, both of her kidneys and part of her stomach were all removed in an attempt to save her life. Very sad and very horrifying.

Here's a Wiki on the bacteria. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pseudomonas_aeruginosa

Our thoughts and prayers are with her family.

2. Those things are painful even when you have the right antibiotics.
What she went through was horrible. :(

3. I can't imagine what her poor family must have gone through. My daughter is 20.
I can't even think about it.
