(BlackDoctor.org) — Blues singer Etta James is in a Southern California hospital and is being treated for both a potentially deadly blood infection, as well as the urinary tract infection that is believed to have caused it.
According to her son, Sametto James, his mother is suffering from sepsis, a potentially deadly blood poisoning typically caused by a bacterial infection.
The 73 year-old blues legend was admitted to a hospital in Riverside, California, earlier this week. She was also hospitalized for the same problem earlier last year.
