Woman Sounds The Alarm After Losing All Four Limbs To Common Illness

via X

Kristin Fox, a 42-year-old mother and high-school principal in Ohio, contracted the flu, which led to severe complications.

She suffered from septic shock, bacterial pneumonia, and organ failure, eventually losing her arms and legs.

Fox underwent amputations and intensive physical therapy, receiving prosthetics in October 2020.

Her journey to recovery involved overcoming numerous challenges and setbacks, with support from her family and organizations offering custom prosthetics.

“I felt like I was dying,” she told Fox News Digital during a phone interview.

“Within 30 minutes, I was on a ventilator, and they said I probably wouldn’t make it,” Fox said.

“She had developed bacterial pneumonia, which was leading to organ failure… She was put into a medically induced coma and given vasopressor drugs in an attempt to save her vital organs.”

“The doctors told my family they should prepare for the loss of some fingers or toes, because they were pulling so much from my extremities to try to keep my organs alive,” Fox said.

“It was touch and go for the next week,” Fox said.

Fox was slowly brought out of her coma. “I was so confused,” she said. “I was still on a ventilator. I had no idea what was going on in the world (with COVID).”

“They literally wrapped me like a mummy because I didn’t want my kids to see — I hadn’t told them yet about losing my arms and legs,” she recalled.
