Triple Goobers

With Norah's initial labs, we knew that she had pneumonia. What we hadn't expected was for the culture to grow out THREE different bacterias all in high population. Her Nurse Practitioner said that two was common with trach patients, but not necessarily three.

Her initial antibiotic was covering two of those goobers, which left the one more or less untreated. This explains why she wasn't getting much better yet. They switched her yesterday, and we'll hopefully see her bounce back pretty quickly. What a relief.

So we may be headed back to SDCH today --fingers crossed--. Thank you all for your show of support.. It's been a crazy week!
