UPDATE: It is most likely a contaminated sample. Only 1 out of 4 samples is growing this (which appears to be MRSA) and the other 3 are clean. We'll have to wait it out to be sure, but I am feeling so much better about it.

Trying not to freak...
Gess is inpatient (again!) and yesterday we found out that one of his blood cultures was growing something. It was only 1 day out or something, so this was just preliminary. And, it is totally possible that someone contaminated the sample, etc. But...part of me is totally freaked out. We have been down the blood infection route before and it is scary. Please, please, please let it be a contaminated sample!
