Klebsiella pneumoniae

We found out today that it isn’t a picc line infection. It’s actually a bacteria that is found in your gut called Klebsiella pneumoniae and if you are immune suppressed and you have lots of diarrhea it can get into your bloodstream and cause a blood infection. So not great but we now know that it isn’t the line. The good news is the antibiotic used to treat it is the one she has already been on for two days. The culture from yesterday hasn’t had any growth yet. So if it still has no growth tomorrow morning then we may get to go home tomorrow on IV antibiotics!
