Infection

While I was home, the doctors stopped in to see Beth. It appears as if she has a “gram-positive” staphylococcus infection, which may very well have come in with the stem cells. It could also have come in through her skin. She could be growing it in her blood. (I’m just reporting what I’m hearing). It seems as if they’ve ruled out that this infection was associated with her port.

Her fever now is 38.2 C (or 100.8 F) — it’s a slight fever, but not alarming. But at any rate, the antibiotics will be able to handle it.
