'Meet the Parents' Actress Dies After Two Misdiagnoses

Sorry if this has been posted before, but gee life can be too short for some.

She was only 31 years of age

The actress who was famously smashed in the face by a volleyball in the Meet The Parents comedy died last month after two medics misdiagnosed her pneumonia. Nicole DeHuff, who played Teri Polo's sister in the hilarious 2000 movie, checked into three Los Angeles hospitals, but only when her problems became inoperable did doctors realize what was wrong with her. The actress' mother Patsie says, "By the time she reached the third hospital, it was too late. She was unconscious." The grieving mother reveals her daughter was rushed to hospital on February 12 but was sent home by medics and told to take painkiller Tylenol. Patsie DeHuff recalls, "The next day my daughter was worse." Again, the actress went to hospital, but this time medics prescribed antibiotics for bronchitis. Two days later, paramedics rushed to her home after she collapsed, gasping for breath. The tragic actress died on February 16.

Pneumonia, which is fluid on the lungs. I cant imagine how ill she would have been leading up to that.

I went to the hospital with bilateral pneumonia in 2001. I was labeled as "toxic" when I went to the hospital - which more or less means, near death. I felt horrible. So I am sure she must have felt pretty bad. This sucks I hate to see this happen to someone.

I am sure the docs who missed this one feel terrible.
