Sarah cultured a new bug

At her clinic appt. last week, she cultured stenotrophomonas maltophilia. Its a very uncommon bacterium but is being seen increasingly in people with CF. They don't do anything differently to treat it than most bacteria and she was put on augmentin because of a cough even before the culture came back. However, its drug-resistant, so we'll see.

I hope that the augmentin works on the bug, and hope she's feeling better.  Please keep us posted on how she's doing.

She's fine. Just another normal cough.

I'm late in responding, but that's too bad. Will she go back to see if it goes away? Hopefully it won't affect her health.
