CLAY CENTER, Kan. – A Kansas mother has died just more than a week after delivering triplets.
KWCH-TV reports that Casi Rott of Clay Center delivered the babies Jan. 29 at a Wichita hospital.
She had spent the proceeding three months in Wichita away from her husband and 6- and 2-year-old daughters.
She was treated for a blood clot in her lungs before returning home.

Her husband, Joey Rott, says that upon her return, she snuggled with her two older daughters for about five minutes before she began having health issues.
She died on Feb. 8.
Joey Rott says that he had never “met a soul as kind as she was.”
Friend Kelsey Wuthrich says she “loved her kids more than anything.”
An online fundraising effort is underway to help the family, and so far has raised nearly $55,000.
