Mother-of-six faces losing her toes from deadly sepsis after doctors told her to ‘go back to bed’
- Michelle Griffiths, 28, suffered multiple organ failure, her brother in law said

A mother-of-six is facing losing her toes from deadly sepsis after doctors allegedly told her to ‘go back to bed.’
Michelle Griffiths, 28, was reportedly prescribed antibiotics by a GP who believed she had a kidney infection.
But when her condition continued to get worse she was visited at home by a doctor who told her she was OK and to ‘go back to bed,’ it has been claimed.
Michelle finally drove herself to hospital days later in a desperate plea for help and was diagnosed with pneumonia and sepsis.
The mother, of Llanllyfni, North Wales, will now have to have her toes and her thumb amputated after suffering multiple organ failure.

Michelle from Llanllyfni in Gwynedd, has been moved from hospital to hospital
Brother-in-law Sion Hughes said: ‘On January 4 the doctor came round to visit her as she was really poorly but he kept saying: ‘She’s all right, she’s all right’ and: ‘You can go back to bed’.
‘Then, two days later, she had to drive herself to Ysbyty Gwynedd hospital in absolute agony.
‘We got a phone call at around 6am the next morning saying: ‘You need to come in, it’s your sister-in-law. She’s not in a good place. We’re not sure if she’ll pull through but we’ve sedated her and had to take her to Glan Clwyd.’
‘When we got there we were told she had multiple organ failure so her liver, her kidneys, her lungs – everything had stopped working essentially.
‘After a week or so, she still wasn’t getting any better and then she had pneumonia and a possible blood clot on the lung, which then caused a sepsis infection.
‘Her feet turned black and her thumb also turned black.’
He said after five weeks in Glan Clwyd she was transferred to Bangor where doctors un-sedated her.
Her brother-in-law said: ‘We’re so worried how she’s going to survive throughout all this’
‘At the moment she is finally starting to come through it a bit but I wouldn’t wish this on anybody,’ Mr Hughes said.
The family are now raising funds to help full-time carer Michelle with her recovery.
Mr Hughes said: ‘She’s got six kids and one of them has autism so she cares for him full time. We’re so worried how she’s going to survive throughout all this.
‘They’re going to have to amputate the top of her feet and also her thumb. We really want to help her and raise any amount of funds we can for her.
‘It’s going to be a nightmare now to get the funds to turn her life around as a result of this.’
He described the hospital staff for their ‘absolutely fantastic’ treatment of Michelle.
