    Well, assuming he had no Comorbid conditions such as diabetes, it’s hard to explain other than just bad luck and obviously sepsis. As others have said, pneumonia shouldn’t take the life of a healthy 34 year old. H1N1 influenza has of late had a predilection for killing the young, but rarely penumonia

      Swampy did hit one thing though, Check the damn patient. Few months ago wifey had a gall bladder issue, ER doc looked at a few tests and was going to send her home. We declined and doc got pissed. Anyway once admitted they ran another scan and indeed her GB was bad. Doc who did surgery said she was 12-24 hours from having a severe infection and it's good we stood our ground and stayed.
      Within hours of the surgery she was 1000% better.

          I wonder if he vaped. Lots of vaping deaths via lung failure recently.

          Just saw this thread, and that's how I learned of it - so thank you to the GC family and sharing, even when the news is bad.

          I had a friend from HS, he still lived in G'ville, died of pnuemonia only a few months ago (about 48-49y old). Stubborn fella, likely a smoker of weed/cigs/vaping. Just brutal to lose someone, esp when you think something could have been done.

          Coming back to Ed, much respect all around, going back to his early days. He'll definitely be missed by more than he will ever have known he had touched. Rest well, Ed.

            I assume you’re talking about the GCMB app. I used it for a month. It’s slow and glitchy compared to Tapatalk.

                Very sad, such a terrible loss of a young life - and just entering his prime. Pneumonia can be very dangerous at any age, especially with the added complication of sepsis. RIP and sincere condolences to friends and family.

                      Edward Aschoff's fiancee grateful for 'memories of all the lives he touched'
                      8:33 PM ET
                      • ESPN

                      Katy Berteau, the fiancée of Edward Aschoff, tweeted her thanks for the "outpouring of love" shown since the ESPN college football reporter's death Tuesday after a brief illness.

                      "I want to say thank you to everyone who has expressed their sympathies, condolences, and prayers for me and his family and friends," Berteau wrote on Aschoff's Twitter feed Thursday.

                      "The outpouring of love, admiration, and gratitude for his life have been so incredible, and have helped me through these last few days. It has brought me brief moments of joy in this darkness to see all the pictures, videos, and memories of all the lives he touched."

                      Aschoff died on his 34th birthday. He and Berteau were to be married in New Orleans in April.

                      Berteau also clarified the cause of Aschoff's death in her tweets.

                      "Edward was admitted to the hospital a week after our first visit to the ER, where he was diagnosed with multifocal pneumonia," Berteau wrote. "After failed antibiotic treatment, with worsening of symptoms, we took him back to the ER and he was immediately admitted.

                      "After many tests -- bone marrow and lung biopsies -- treatment was started for a presumed diagnosis of HLH [hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis], an unregulated, over-activation of the immune system that causes it to attack itself and other healthy tissues. Within 3 days of being moved into the ICU, he passed."

                        His fiancé tweeted today that after the lung biopsy it came back that he had an undiagnosed aggressive form of stage 4 lymphoma. This along with the pneumonia was the cause of his sudden and rapid decline.

                        @AschoffESPN: (1/9) Hi all, Katy again- this will be my last post on Edward’s social media. I wanted to provide an update about Edward’s passing that may help people in processing it and making a little more sense of what happened.

                        @AschoffESPN: (2/9) After his passing, the hospital received the final results from his lung biopsy. Unbeknownst to us, Edward had stage 4, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in his lungs. This is an aggressive type of cancer that is usually undetectable until it is very advanced.

                        @AschoffESPN: (3/9) Both pneumonia and non-Hodgkins lymphoma can trigger HLH in the body and that is seemingly what happened with Edward. All of this combined is what led to his very rapid decline those last few days, and ultimately his passing.

                        @AschoffESPN: (4/9) Edward's family and I are so grateful for the excellent care that was provided by all his caregivers, including the team of doctors and nurses.

                        @AschoffESPN: (5/9) I hope this information helps people in dealing with this tragedy. It has helped me knowing that his passing was inevitable, and I’m at least grateful he didn’t have to go through the painful treatment and drawn out process of battling the disease

                        @AschoffESPN: (6/9) He wouldn’t have wanted to go out like that. His ass was too vain. I also wanted to provide this update because he would have wanted everyone to know that something way bigger than pneumonia took him down.

                        @AschoffESPN: (7/9) In lieu of flowers, we’re asking that donations be made to a scholarship fund being set up by the University of Florida’s School of Journalism and Communications (see end for details). He loved mentoring and sharing his advice for up-and-coming journalists and reporters.

                        @AschoffESPN: (8/9) Again, thank you to everyone for your continuous support. To all of you who have reached out, provided and offered support, donated, attended services, shared their favorite Edward stories, how he touched your life, thank you, from bottom of my ❤️ -Katy Berteau Edward Aschoff on Twitter

                        @AschoffESPN: (9/9) Donations to the Edward Aschoff Memorial Fund at UF’s College of Journalism and Communications can be made out to the “U.F. Foundation”, sent to P.O. Box 14425, Gainesville, FL 32604, Attn: Gift Processing. Please note "Edward Aschoff Memorial Fund" in the memo area. Edward Aschoff on Twitter

                          Wow -
                          Terrible indeed. She had some real shyt to deal with the last few weeks.

                          I did love her comment:
                          “He wouldn’t have wanted to go out like that. His ass was too vain”

                          she sounds like she would have been a good wife for him.

                                  The management works very hard to make sure the community is running the best software, best designs, and all the other bells and whistles. Care to buy us a non-alcoholic Zima? We'd really appreciate it! Just click the "Donate" tab at the top of the page.
