Poor Jim he died of a virulent Streptococcus A, infection. Probably a cousin of necrotizing strep A (flesh eating strep). He was only sick for 72 hours at least half that time in the ICU and he was dead. It trashed his throat and lungs and there was nothing anyone could do. It just moved too fast. The antibiotics never had a chance to catch up. Virulent Strep A is so random there is no way to predict it. So sad!
