Since the letter of the day is “S” ….
Amanda has a STAPH infection … SPOKE to a very nice infectious disease doctor … we aren’t sure of the SOURCE of the infection … but the staph definitely did a number on her lungs … but waiting to see Neuro doctor … making sure staph is not in her brain or her SHUNT …
They got Amanda cleaned up and she was thrilled to take some SIPS of ice water – after that first sip she had a look of pure bliss on her face. She held her own with just an O2 nasal cannula … breathing on her own. She is too tired to do anything but will wake up and talk a little when she has the STRENGTH.
The STAPH infection has knocked her on her butt … she is sick sick sick (another “S”) but holding her own … doctors have been great but we SIT and wait and wait and SIT.
