Back in the hospital

Beth has something like a urinary tract infection going on. The urinary tract thing has been driving her crazy for days. She’s tested positive for both the BK virus and also the CMV virus. My understanding is that both of these are very common, and wouldn’t be a problem for folks who have normal immune systems. But it’s also common for folks who have had transplants (and the related immunosupression) to have to fight off these viruses.

So she’s back in the hospital, and they’re treating this with “aggressive IV fluids”. She’s already had an ultrasound on her kidneys, and everything there appears to be fine.
