Teacher Loses Legs After Going To Bed With flu

Ms. Bransden began experiencing flu-like symptoms on New Year’s Eve, a few days after celebrating a big Christmas with her family. After she went to bed to try and rest, doctors described her as “falling off a cliff,” deteriorating so severely that her heart stopped.

“Julianna’s husband Tim called 111 and they told him to keep giving her paracetamol, but when she was no better he called an ambulance,” Julianna’s mother, Linda Burgess, told The Independent.

“I actually lost my sister-in-law to something very similar, so we were very aware that people can get ill quite quickly.”

Ms. Burgess said she received an urgent call to come and look after her grandchildren, 14-year-old Emilia, and 11-year-old William, while Tim was rushed to the hospital with Julianna.

Once admitted, Julianna spent 18 days in a coma, with doctors working around the clock to treat her for septic shock, two cardiac arrests, and multiple organ failures. She had developed sepsis as an aggressive form of pneumonia from influenza and StrepA.

Julianna eventually came around, but the sepsis had caused severe damage to her hands and feet, and both legs had to be amputated.

“It was a total shock,” Ms. Burgess said. “We had never realized the extent of the damage that sepsis could cause, and that it could be caused by influenza and Strep A. Now you look back, and it all seems like a blur.”

Ms. Burgess praised her daughter’s bravery in the face of the “devastating” illness. She added that Julianna had “continued to smile at every step.”

“She has amazed all the medical staff because she has continued to be strong, resilient, and accepting of everything. She just smiles.”

Julianna is currently being treated at Withybush Hospital, having only left intensive care earlier this month.
