Update - 9/10 6:30pm

Campbell did not have to be readmitted despite the vomiting incident last night. She did go for her test as scheduled and we should have the results of that test within the next 24 hours.

One new revelation is that one of the blood tests that came back showed that the cause of the fever may be "walkin pneumonia." The reason that the antibiotics she was on all last week did not have any effect was that they were both penicillin derivatives which will not target that bacteria. Dr Porter is checking with the team about putting her in zythromax to see if that doesn't start to correct things.

More to come tomorrow no doubt...

With Love,

Greg, Robin, Caitlin, Caroline and Campbell

  1. I'm sure its different b/c of her diagnosis and surgeries, but I had "walking pneumonia" a couple of yrs ago. The Z-pac or zythromax nipped it though, very quick. My fever was 103 and I felt awful. I hope this is what is causing her fever, b/c zythromax is a quick and effective drug for the bacterial pneumonia. Hang in there! love h
