WWE star Sara Lee has passed away, and her mother, Terri Lee, revealed the news about her daughter's passing in a message on a social media account. (1)
She added, "It is with heavy hearts that we wanted to communicate that our Sara Weston has gone to be with Jesus. Our Sara Weston has gone to be with Jesus. Everyone here is in disbelief, and we have not finalized the preparations."
The family is seeking some privacy during this difficult time so that they can express their astonishment and prepare to carry out the rituals associated with the funeral of the now-deceased professional wrestler.
The family has not revealed what caused her death or why she passed away. Still, if one is to believe the pro wrestler, she had just gotten over a severe sinus infection when she decided to begin working out at the gym with more intensity.
Only two days before, Lee had said the following on her post on Instagram: "Celebrating finally being healthy enough to go to the gym 2 days in a row... first ever sinus infection kicked my butt #Saraselfie #gains"
A GoFundMe page was started by her fellow WWE wrestler, Bull James, to gather money for Cory and their children.
The campaign, which has generated more than $50,000 of its goal of $20,000, says, "We're all shocked and saddened by the sudden death of Tough Enough winner Sara Lee. As her loving husband, Cory, picks up the pieces and continues to raise their 3 children, the last thing anyone in that position wants to be worried about is money and paying for a funeral and everything else that comes along with it."
Did Sinus Infection Cause Sara Lee's death?
The official reason for her death is not known. Speculations are being made regarding the most likely cause of Sara Lee's death. One cannot help but speculate that her sinus infection may have been the cause of her death.
What are Sinuses?
Your nasal cavities can become infected, swollen, and inflamed, which is referred to medically as sinusitis or rhinosinusitis. (2) To protect itself from irritants such as dust, pollen, and other particles, our body secretes bodily fluids, which serve to drown, overwhelm, and flush out the offending foreign body.
Sometimes the response is greater than the necessary measure, and fluid accumulation in the nostrils can enable germs to thrive, resulting in a sinus infection. This can happen when the response is excessive.
In most circumstances, a virus is to blame for sinusitis; however, bacteria or, in extremely rare instances, the fungus can also be to blame for a sinus infection. There are a variety of additional illnesses, including allergens, nasal polyps, and dental infections, that can cause your sinuses to get clogged, as well as pain and symptoms similar to coughing, colds, and the flu.
Is it Possible For a Sinus Infection to be Fatal?
According to the editor of Popular Science, Claire Maldarelli, pathogenic bacteria that invade our sinuses can occasionally make their way to the brain. (3) However, this is a very unlikely occurrence.
She advises that if a person has an upper respiratory infection that has lasted longer than it should have (over two weeks) or if they have a severe headache or swelling in the face, they should instantly have seen an ENT doctor and, in fact, visit an Emergency Outpatient department for evaluation.
She also warns that if a person has an ear, nose, and throat infection that has lasted much longer than it should have (over two weeks). She cites the case of a Michigan teen who passed away from an equivalent infectious disease.
The bacteria had gotten around and crossed the barrier protection blood-brain barrier and ended up causing meningitis.
She states that even though the likelihood of passing away from such inflammation is low, such news is an important reminder that patients and physicians should pay particular attention to the signs of a sustained infection.
If you frequently take antibiotics whenever you have a cough or cold, or if you are in the practice of demanding medicines after a few days have passed since the onset of a cold or the flu, you are asking for trouble.
Neglecting severe sinus blockage that will last for several weeks at a time is a big error. Still, it is an even bigger mistake to acquire antibiotic-resistant bacterial strains or viruses. Both of these things are big mistakes.
