Post Stem Cell Transplant: Day +47

So today is one of those good news/bad news days. Thankfully Tami's medical team caught the infection in its early stages during a routine blood draw. The bad news is that Klebsiella is a serious infection and not a good one for a transplant patient to pick up.

Her doctor put her on an IV drip antibiotic and expects that in a few days Tami will be able to return to her apartment. As of this morning she still didn't have any symptoms from the infection. But I'm hoping and praying that she doesn't have any type of serious reaction to the new meds she must take to get rid of the Klebsiella.
