To Hell and Back

I'm gonna keep this short. My daughter (Baby Sam) got very very very sick some weeks ago. When we asked the doctor at the ICU something like: Okey, but she's gonna make it, right?

The doctor said something like: I'm not so sure about that. And 0.43 seconds later I was in hell and I stayed there for like 10 days and now I'm slowly coming back because Baby Sam is recovering just fine.

What happened to her? Septic shock caused by Pneumococcus, a very ordinary bacteria that by some freakish bad luck managed to enter the blood stream where it caused mayhem until stopped by antibiotic miracle drugs.
