In brief: Doubtful

Sepsis is a severe, life-threatening illness that almost universally ends a person up in the hospital.
Typically they are very ill, with high fevers, confusion, low blood pressure, etc.

In brief: Not for long

Sepsis may be misidentified at first, but it quickly becomes apparent after the first couple hours.
There are no silent septic episodes - they all cause significant symptoms.
