Brazilian model Mariana Bridi dies from urinary tract infection

Gorgeous Brazilian model Mariana Bridi had to have her feet and hands amputated because of an infection and is currently fighting for her life at an intensive care unit in southeastern Brazil.

The 20-year-old beauty’s condition was said to have deteriorated overnight and changed from “serious” to “very serious” on Friday, the Espirito Santo State Health Secretariat said in a statement.

Bridi is suffering from a generalized infection that forced the amputation of her hands and feet earlier this week because the flow of oxygen to her limbs was reduced.

Her boyfriend Thiago Simoes told Globo TV’s G1 Web site:
“The only thing that matters now is her life,”

She is not breathing on her own and is undergoing hemodialysis at a hospital in the city of Serra, the secretariat said.

Bridi became ill in December and doctors originally diagnosed her with kidney stones, but her condition worsened and doctors then diagnosed a urinary tract infection that spread. She was hospitalized on Jan 3.

Our hearts are with her and her family. Lets hope she can hang on and get through this.
