IV ABX

IV Antibiotics. That's the plan for Will's current lung infection. It appears that the only thing growing in his cultures is the expected pseudomonas aeruginosa -- such a big problem for people with CF both before and after lung transplant. Turns out that Will's current pseudomonas is completely resistant to Cipro. So much for the high-dose Cipro. So, now Will will be on meropenem and aztreonam by IV every 8 hours and (still) the inhaled Colistin and HTS. Quite the regimen. Hopefully it works and he'll start to feel better soon.

I have to go back to Hanford tomorrow, leaving around 5:30 AM, so Liam is at Will's parents' tonight and tomorrow night. The house is sure quiet without him.

Best of luck with the new medical treatment. Sure put my tooth ache into perspective! So sorry you have to go through all this. Thinking of you.
