MSSA...at least it's not MRSA

Hey Everyone,

Amy came home on Friday and is taking it much easier this time around. She's on IV antibiotics that are dispensed through a baby bottle-like thing that she changes out every 24 hours. It's pretty easy.

Her official diagnosis was MSSA (Methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus), which isn't as bad as MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus). Basically, they grew cultures and tested them to see what type of antibiotics would work best on them, and came up with a combo of 2 - one oral and one in IV form. She has a central line and had her drain taken out of her head on Thursday.

She's a lot more tired this time around, most likely because of the infection and the antibiotics. Her grandmother is coming back into town tonight to help out again for the week. Thanks Grandma!

-Erin
