The docs confirmed yesterday that there was a staph infection caused by the broviac line, either by it leaking or by staph somehow finding its way onto the line and into Sarah's chest. So they have removed the line and will see how it goes for a day or two. Sarah looked very happy when I was there Wednesday evening and both she and Patty are excited to have no line and extra tubes to deal with for a short time. Woo Hoo!
Right now it looks as if they would be returning this weekend; however, if an antibiotic regimen is required, their stay will be a bit longer.
