Hospital update

Just wanted to give everyone a quick update. Gracie's second culture also had a gram positive Bacillia, which is some sort of bacteria. A staph or something similar. Weird thing is that she has no fever and is bouncing off the walls in that hospital. The infectious disease doctor came by and sounds like she thinks the infection might bed in her catheter. They should know what the bug tomorrow, and will know if ots in the line or her body by Monday. I'm a little concerned by the lack of urgency on their behalf, but not sure there is much I can do about it. I plan to email Dr. Orchard tonight to see if he has an opinion on this.

Good news is Gracie seems to feel great. I'll keep you posted on her progress.
