Hopeful

Got some what I hope might be some encouraging news. My infectious disease specialist finally sent over a referral to an immunologist. They are concerned because it seems like my body can't fight off the MRSA(3rd time on IV antibiotics since May of this year). They are going to rule out or in an immune deficiency which would totally make sense already. They will also try to desensitize me to vancomycin and sulfa drugs(only drugs that work) besides Cubicin. Hope this makes sense and is not to difficult to understand.

It does. I'm glad and hope it will help control this for you. Hugs & a prayer! 🙏🌼

So glad Amanda I've been looking for you today--although the app wasn't working for the better part of the afternoon. I took vancomycin years ago for an intestinal infection (caught same as yours) called c dificile and my guts have never been the same. But I did not have to get IV antibiotics😕. Repeatedly. What part of the globe are you if you don't mind saying? I'm so glad you're home safe.
