Question: My mother was hospitalization because of a general unexplained infection which caused her UTI and infection on the outer part of the eye which resulted in cornea damage and loss of vision on the left eye. Two weeks after being discharged she had her eye under control but her bloodwork came with hints of an infection and the urine test revealed two mayor things: an infection of Citrobacter freundii and her blood came with and observation of macrocytosis. She feels weak and her arms and legs have red spots called patechia. What will happen to her if she doesn't treat this? What may she have?
