11:30 AM: I just got a call from Chapel Hill, and her line has grown an infection. It's a gram positive rod, and they suspect a bacteria called bacillus, but they don't know which specific type yet. The doctor said one concern is if it's bacillus cereus (I think that's the right spelling based on the way he pronounced it), which is very resistant to antibiotics. Anyhow, we'll see what strain grows and what it seems to respond to and go from there. We're headed up to Chapel Hill shortly, and they're working on getting a room for us, although it sounds like they're very crowded right now. Sophie seems to feel well, so that helps somewhat. We'll keep you posted as we have more information.


You all are in my thoughts. I hope that the infection will clear up quickly.

Oh, my! My thoughts and prayers are with you always.
