Day 8

Natalie does have C Diff and strep. They did catch both early yesterday and started antibiotics right away so we are hoping and praying both will be gone quickly and that the strep is not in her line. Natalie asked me to post those specific prayers on her blog for her.

C Diff possbily came from taking too much antibiotics in the past. The strep is still being tested to see what strain it is. We are hoping it is not a line infection because that complicates things for Natalie.

Doctors said that both are very common for most patients here because of their low immune system. They are surprised that Natalie has never had C Diff before. Everyone is vigilantly on top of treating both so we are hoping Natalie will be better in the next 24 hours.

Natalie was energetic and talkative today. She doesn't look like she has any infections at all. She's been pretty social with her visitors. She was smiling when I walked in this afternoon and she ate a whole cup of peaches.
