      Leave it to you, etznab, to dig up stuff. Well done.

      Abdominal infections can be nasty and dangerous, and if something like
      staph is involved, bad news. Obviously, there is more to the story,
      such as complications from surgery, for example. I notice the obituary
      says she was working as a psychiatric nurse. I remember that she had a
      degree in psychology from way back.

      Hospital environments are not clean places these days. Hmmm.
