LEE’S SUMMIT, Mo. — The family of a Blue Springs woman is in disbelief that just days after she turned 37, they’re faced with saying goodbye. They say Kristie Green died from complications of the flu even though she had been vaccinated. She is the second flu death at The University of Kansas Hospital this season.

“She could always make me laugh,” said Green’s daughter, Latool Williams.

Green, a moth

Green, a mother of three and grandmother of one, became sick December 19, her 37th birthday. Williams says within two days, her mother went to two hospitals, was told she had Type A flu, and was sent home. Williams says Green went to the hospital a third time as she fought for every breath, and was transferred to The University of Kansas Hospital.

“She just looked so different and swollen and terrible,” said Williams.

Williams says her mother was placed on an ECMO machine that does the work of the heart and lungs. She showed some signs of improvement, but the flu had led to a staph infection that eventually overwhelmed her body. She died the day after Christmas.
