Crissy was forced to bury her husband after 25 years of marriage and the reason was heartbreaking. He passed away because of complications from a tick bite.
Crissy is now sharing her story in hopes of assisting other women who find themselves in similar predicaments. She has spoken eloquently about the sadness that she feels when she realizes that her teenage son is not going to have someone to teach him about the birds and bees or even how to drive. Her husband was a man who was all about helping his family.
Over the course of their marriage, he hardly ever even got sick. Once he started to run a fever after the tick bite took place, Crissy knew that something had to be wrong. She took him to the emergency room immediately.
The sweats that he was going through were so profuse, she was forced to change his bed sheets and his clothes. He was diagnosed with a kidney infection and given antibiotics. Sadly, this wrongful diagnosis cost him his life. The illness progressed quickly. All it took was 12 hours time for him to go from cracking jokes to being hooked up to machines that were breathing for him. It took two days in the hospital for her husband to receive the correct diagnosis. By then, it was simply too late.
