Back in Primary childrens

Elyza's shunt started getting red again. So, South Davis made an appointment for her to be seen by neural surgery at Primary Children's. We were hopeful that it would be a simple shunt replacement. But, they did a tap on Elyza's shunt and found an infection in her spinal fluid. She was admitted for surgery immediately. They removed her shunt, and now they are draining her spinal fluid externally. They are taking daily samples of her fluid to check her progress. She is currently on three types of antibiotics. The doctors have determined that she has Staphalococous Avreas in her spinal fluid. They are predicting that it will take about ten days to clear the infection. They are still hopeful to get her eating without the feeding tube.
