Deltona kids leave hospital; Port Orange boys on dialysis

Three Deltona children who were confirmed with E.coli have been discharged from Florida Hospital Orlando, while two Port Orange boys remain hospitalized two weeks after they were sickened with E.coli infections widely blamed on a petting zoo at area fairs.
The Chace family of Deltona has filed a lawsuit against Plant City-based Ag-Venture Farm Shows, who provided animals at three Central Florida fairs. Twins Courtney and Cole Chace, 18 months old, and their brother, Connor, 3, were hospitalized at last week.
Ava Wheatley, grandmother of the two Port Orange brothers who remain at Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children and Women, said Wednesday night that both boys, ages 2 and 4, are still undergoing daily dialysis.
A total of 26 cases of confirmed E.coli infection, some which have progressed to the potentially fatal condition hemolytic uremic syndrome, have been linked to the three Central Florida fairs.
