The high school teacher was initially diagnosed with double pneumonia, triggered by a strep infection.

However, this soon turned into a much more serious scenario. The pneumonia led to septic shock, plunging Sherri Moody into a battle for her life.

Rheumatoid arthritis medication Sherri had been taking exacerbated her illness, affecting her body’s ability to fight the infection, further complicating her medical situation.

Sherri recounted how her hospital stay became a constant challenge, leading to her being put into a medically induced coma to redirect blood flow to her vital organs.

«I’ve never gone to the ER before in my life,» Sherri told Today.

“I was very healthy, very in shape. I ate right, exercised” she said, surprised at becoming so suddenly ill.

The septic shock led to a devastating outcome for teacher Sherri Moody — the amputation of all four limbs.

Sherri’s husband described how her arms and legs turned black and «mummified,» as blood flow was directed to her vital organs.
