I know someone who had a blood infection and apparently it went to his heart. He was in the hospital and he is only 19. I don't really know him, hes a friend of a friend. How serious is it? Could this be fatal?
This is probably fatal. Since you have infected blood, the infection is always flowing through you, and it gets to everywhere in your body. Every part of your body will suffer, and probably be overpowered by the infection.
