Galena School E. coli outbreak still not solved – over a dozen ill

Six year old Sidney Jacobi remains on dialysis, in lots of pain

WAVE Shayla Reaves reported that the E. coli outbreak at Galena Elementary School in Indiana continues to cause major problems for some of the kids who were infected. A 6-year-old girl is now on dialysis, and has been in the hospital for weeks. Sidney Jacobi is one of eight Galena students who tested positive for E. coli. She has been on dialysis for about a week now, and just wants to go home according to her mother, Marcia. Still, Sidney has continued to test positive for the infection, and her mother says the hardest part is not knowing when she’ll be OK again.  You can keep up with Sidney’s online journal by visiting: www.caringbridge.org/visit/sidneyjacobi.
