MY thoughts and prayers go out to this poor girls family.
My child goes to this school as well, and while the school is saying that they have cleaned, I can tell you that over the past few years that my child has went to school there has been quit a few confirmed cases of MRSA at this school, I'm not sure if it's just the area or what!

My Heart goes out to her Family may she rest in the arms of our Lord Jesus. My 3 year old had MRSA in Aug. 2008 (she was 2 then). I was changing her diaper and saw what I thought was a boil or little pimple, after a few days of watching it I became concerned because my Mother gets them and has had to goto the hospital to lance them. It took our Dr. a week before he would hospitalize her once she couldn't walk anymore I couldn't wait. Then the surgery came It is so heartbreaking watching your 2yr. get sliced open to drain the infection but if she hadn't she would have died.She has a horrible scar and now everytime we goto the Dr. she's afraid she will have to stay, at least she is with us,so I can live with the scar.Again I am so sorry and may you rest knowing she is safe now.
