I read in the daily independent newspaper today that Emily Spurlock died. I was wondering if anyone knew what happened to her? I haven't seen or heard anything about her since high school.

for people reading this, MRSA is a bacterial infection that is resistant to some/most antibiotics. It enters the body through a cut, sore, catheter, or breathing tube. This bacteria can cause serious staph infections. Its often acquired by just being in a hospital. It can be minor like a pimple. Or more serious like involving the heart and it's valves. People who have been hospitalized or had surgery in the past year are at increased risk of having MRSA. Good hand washing and personal hygiene helps prevent MRSA.

it's not non sense, nor is it made up... a close friend of her's told me it was drug related.... i'm not trying to spread anything, only see if others knew what happened to her, your retarded... i actually have a life believe it or not.. just because i take a few minutes out of my evening to ask questions and try to see if anyone can clarify anything for me does not mean i have no life? how can you come to any conclusions about my life from a forum posted on a web site? does not everyone take time out of their day to use the internet? and your on here discussing shit on this message board just like i am, are you a special needs victim?

I don't know this girl and I don't know any of you but this girl cannot defend herself, she has passed away. So 'friend' even if you did hear something like that then you should have been nmore respectful of this woman and her family than to reply to this thread with a rumor that you were told. If her friend was so close to her then she should be ashamed for betraying a confidence like that. How sad for this woman to be slandered when she no longer has a voice.

They do not print in obits that someone died for ODing. That is the stupidest thing I have heard of. It usual says passed away suddenly at home. That is the politically correct way to say someone ODed. I know, I write obits.

Emilys heatlh problems started when she became pregnant. She had MRSA that ended up in her heart. She had her first valve replacement in November 2008 when she had her baby boy. She did ok for a little while then she had some strokes. Last summer she became ill again. She had another surgery in Louisville where they replaced more valves in her heart and had to remove part of her heart and reconstruct what was left. During the holiday season she was sick again, but they didnt think that she would be strong enough to survive another surgery, so they were trying to just give her antibiotics and praying that it would kill the infection. The antibiotics didnt work and about 2weeks ago they told her that she would either need a heart transplant or another valve replacement surgery. They only gave her a 50%chance of surviving another valve transplant. Last week she was very very sick. Her parents took her to the hospital where she passed away at KDMC Sunday Morning.
Now, I am going to set some things straight right here and now to anyone and everyone what wants to talk about Emily. Emily was one of the sweetest people that I have ever had as a friend. Yes, she had an addiction that overpowered her. But out of all the things that had happened Emily wanted more than anything for people to learn from her mistakes she had made. She loved her son and her family and her friends very very much and I will be damned if I am going to let a bunch of people with nothing better to do with their time go around and talk about her. Also, Ryan Hale her fiance was with her when she died. I dont know who started saying that he was out cheating on her, and its probably best that I dont know. She loved Ryan and Ryan loved her. Now, the truth has been said and now everyone can stop guessing and filling in the gaps with any bull shit story that they pulled straight out of their asses.

Yeah Im the fat blond girl from Fairview. You can say what you want about me. I dont care. I have been out of school for a long time. Obviously you havent grown up yet. Poor person. I dont know what I said that turned you so sour. But at least I was big enough person to put my name down for what I said. Im not on here to fight or argue with anyone. I am just giving everyone the truth so they will quit spreading lies.

hey friend in response to ur comment one thing i need to kno are u a male or female?? my bad for thinking it was absolutely ridiculous for you to make comments about someone who obviously cannot defend herself...she did have a problem but she had cleaned up so i thought that maybe before you should post that you heard it was drug related you should have known that was what happened for sure that's all i'm saying you're pretty low for talking bout someone that has passed anyways...and no i'm not retarded you're pretty lame for calling someone that anyway that's childish
