E. coli kids home for Thanksgiving

The Lanhontan Valley News reported that two children who suffered E. coli infections and hemolytic uremic syndrome in 2006 were able to celebrate Thanksgiving at home with their families.

Lanie Smith, 5, and John ‘Jack’ Cessford IV, 2 and a half, both of Fallon, were both hospitalized earlier this year after contracting the bacteria. Smith spent seven weeks in the intensive care unit at the Children’s Hospital in Oakland for treatment. Cessford was hospitalized in the Renown Health Medical Center intensive care unit for nine days in May.
