Not Quite So Long Lost (getting better)
So, we have made it through the holidays and stayed fairly healthy, until recently. Emily had her check up on December 7 and we recently found out the dreaded mycobacteria abscessus is back! Why oh, why? We are waiting for sensitivity testing right now--to find out which drugs will be an option to treat this once again. It is a hard regimen with three antibiotics, usually a couple IV and one oral...and the last time we did this for six weeks. Em was actually hooked up to IVs for 4 1/2 hours a day! So, for now we wait--Em's actually feeling bad this weekend, been real congested and running a fever. Calling for snow on Monday, so looks like we might have a long weekend for her to rest up.
