After four visits to urgent care her doctors finally realized that she was fighting a bad case of the flu and they admitted her to the hospital. While in the hospital her condition continued to spiral down until she was at the brink of death. She had to be intubated and sedated with machines breathing for her. Brian had to speak to their kids and prepare them for the possibility that Mommy might not be coming home.
Fortunately, Gigi’s condition began to improve and she was eventually able to go home, but not without residual effects from the flu. She suffers from a lack of energy and forgetfulness.
Gigi and Brian tell her story and encourage everyone to get a flu shot every year.
