Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone through your query and understand your concerns. There seems to be a multisystemic involvement. The sepsis involves the body's reaction to an infection, originally involving the lungs (broncitis or pneumonia). This creates a war like environment within the body leading to a collapse in the normal functioning of the body. Hyperglycemia results when the corticosteroids in the blood (secreted by the adrenal gland) is high and occurs in order to deal with the emergency situation. The rise of blood pressure is due to the same adrenal secretions that causes salt retention. When the heart is unable to cope and pump properly, congestive heart failure results.

This is what is going on. But please mention what specifically you want to know and I will guide you accordingly.
