Update on Sat Nov 5th as of 4PM

Linda was started on an antibiotic yesterday at 6 pm, and the nurses say that she is mentally doing a lot better. She is somewhat confused and doesn't always make sense, but a big improvement over her state on Friday. The labs came back today, and they did find a bacteria in her blood, so they will be adding a second, more tailored antibiotic later today. They took out the central lines, and replaced with peripheral, as the central line can often be the source of bacteria.

Her liver function is the still the same, as the medication takes several days to kick in. Her nurse mentioned that they took out the PICC/nutrition line, which can also affect liver results.
