the computer system did ask if i wanted someone else to answer but i said no .. so not to worry about the delay in the response...
so can pneumonia develop that quickly and build enough to cause death in 39 days ?
if mom had taken antibiotics for say 20-30 days rather than 10 days, would that have helped not developing the pneumonia ? mom had a follow up appt with the dentist maybe 25 days after her bad teeth were pulled because her gums were swollen - the dentist determined that she had "bone slivers" in her gums and pulled them out with twezzers ... but it seemed he should have given her more antibiotics at that time between her gums were swollen ...sorry for asking probably the same question in different directions - it just keeps bothering me that "if only" i hadn't insisted that these bad teeth be pulled, that she would not have developed pneumonia and lived maybe another year or so ....i am actually going to a "grief counselor" tomorrow afternoon because i just can't seem to "get a gripp" .. as my brother has told me to do. - Patty
