Update - Joy

The infection that I mentioned is VRE (Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococci). VRE, like many bacteria, can be spread from one person to another through casual contact or through contaminated objects. That is why we have to wear gloves and gowns. I spoke with the nurse and she said that the area where the infection is located is not treatable, but it is also not something that they are not concerned about unless is spreads. If it spreads they will treat with antibiotics to clear it up. That's all we know for now, but will continue to post updates as we have them.
