My sister was a vivid, lively person 2 years ago when I last saw her. Since then, I visited last week and she looks like she's dying, I wanted to pick her up and make it better like I always do, only this time, I know I can't help her.
She has severe tooth decay and can't eat, coupled with a rectal lump (at age of 26), and severe weight loss. She also has a complicated heart murmur since birth. I know that her weight loss is due to the tooth decay and infections from whatever part of the tooth is left. What I'm worried about is a bloodstream infection from her long-term tooth problem.
I've gone so far as to send them recipes to mash her food (she can't cook at all) and told them to serve everything at room temperature. My question is, how severe can this get? She looks like a cancer patient, just skin on bones and she was always muscular and fit. I don't know how to convince her to go to the hospital or a local clinic. The reason I'm doing this today is because she's extremely scared of doctors and hospitals.
If anyone can help me get on the right path, especially with how far her infections can go, please let me know immediately. I would really appreciate it. She's one of the closest people to me, and I want to make sure someone can make her healthy again.
