I hope she makes a full recovery. Survival alone isn't much good news.

My nephew nearly died from fungal meningitis a few years ago. The condition is so rare that he was lucky to find a doctor who could diagnose it in time to save his life. These rare conditions are so dangerous because doctors hardly see them, and the treatments are generally experimental.
A friend of mine who works in immunology told me that viruses and bacteria are easy to treat by comparison because they are so different from us. Treating an amoeba infection must be like treating cancer. You have to almost kill the patient...
