What the….

So, this morning we got the results of Cam’s broncoscopy- it turns out that his pneumonia was caused by legionnaires disease. This result has surprised us all. We’re not sure how he came to aquire the infection, although we do know that people who are immunosuppressed are especially at risk.

After quickly searching wickipedia and Carmel calling the Infection Control Dept we’ve learnt that the disease is not contagious, so family and friends (and “babies in waiting”) who have visited can rest easy.

Cam’s treatment has been further modified to target the infection. Overall, he is feeling a lot better, his temperature remains down and he’s in good spirits. His body’s just tired.
