Staph stalls settling down

Aug 30, 2009

Heedless of our attempts to settle down, staphylococcus aureus inserted its nasty self into our lives this last week: Erin ended up in Duke University Hospital being treated for MRSA. Intravenous antibiotics — vancomycin, the big guns — helped arrest the raging infection, and Erin’s now home recuperating.

A heartfelt thanks to all our local friends and far-flung family members who sent flowers, food, prayers and messages of hope.
