Bad News - The culture from Sam's insertion site has grown out both Staph and E-Coli.
Good News - No growth in his blood cultures.
The Plan - As long as the Staph does not turn out to be a resistant strain, we are going to attempt to save his line and treat through with antibiotics. The infection has not moved up the tunnel of his line yet so we are hoping that we caught this ealry enough. If the infection moves or the staph is resistant to antibiotics we will move Sam to Milwaukee and oull the line.
