Blues singer Etta James is in a Southern California hospital with a potentially deadly infection.

Her son, Sametto James, tells the Riverside Press-Enterprise that his mother was admitted to an undisclosed hospital earlier this week for treatment of sepsis caused by a urinary tract infection.

Sepsis is a potentially deadly blood poisoning caused by a bacterial infection.

The 73-year-old James lives in Woodcrest and was hospitalized for the same problem early last year. She suffers from dementia, leukemia, kidney problems and other ailments.

James is best known for her version of the song "At Last."

I saw this. Sepsis is foreboding, all of the vital organs possibly shutting down.

This is what Mitzi was hospitalized with a couple of weeks ago. It can be deadly if not treated immediately! Thoughts going out to Miss Etta!
