Mother of two, 20, dies one day after flu diagnosis

Mother of two, 20, dies one day after flu diagnosis”

Alani Murrieta, who is the mother of a 2-year-old and 6-month-old, left work on November 26th after not feeling well.

Her family is in shock, saying that Murrieta hardly ever got sick.

Alani Murrieta, 20, of Phoenix, went home from work on Sunday, Nov. 26, because she was not feeling well, Fox 10 reports.

She was brought to Intensive Care but her heart stopped and several resuscitation attempts failed and she died after three o'clock in the afternoon.

Doctors told her family she had the flu which turned into pneumonia. She explains that after the diagnosis, Murrieta's condition steadily worsened.

Murrieta's aunt, Stephanie Gonzales, said Murrieta took the medicine as it was prescribed and then went back home to take some more rest. She coughed all Monday night; on Tuesday, she woke up feeling worse and coughing up blood, according to Gonzalez, who didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

Alani Murrieta, 20, was taken to hospital after having difficulty breathing last Tuesday.

Gonzales is still trying to come to terms with the sudden loss of her niece. An x-ray revealed a bad case of pneumonia, Gonzalez told BuzzFeed News, a common bacterial infection of the lungs commonly marked by fluid build-up, according to MayoClinic. "She was just a lovely person - and we want to express our gratitude for everyone who has shown support for our family". She tells us Murrieta had no pre-existing condition. "Never in a million years would we have thought that we would have lost her that day like this".

"She would do anything for her sons - and it breaks my heart that the little one, who's only six months, will grow up without her", her aunt added. She did not get a flu shot, but her doctors reportedly said there is no way to know if that would have made a difference. A GoFundMe account has been set up to help pay for funeral expenses.

Medical experts found that Australia's flu vaccine, which has the same composition as the one used in the USA, was only 10 percent effective in preventing the strain of the flu virus that circulated there this year, according to a perspective published in The New England Journal of Medicine.
