Hello sir,
From the history you give looks like it is oropharyngeal infection which can present this way. And since it had responded to antibiotics it is all the more more favourable for an infection.
So please don't worry too much.
The demise of your mother has clearly disturbed you a lot.
Hope you come out of the mental trauma.
