“Girl with brain-eating parasite treated with experimental drug”
“I hung on by my husband and asking him, ‘What are we going to do?’ And he would tell me that, ‘We’re gonna pray for Kali and we’re gonna help her fight. We’re gonna tell her to fight.’ And that she would be okay,” Traci said.
To preserve brain tissue, Kali’s doctors induced a coma and cooled her body to 93 degrees. Doctors also turned to the Centers for Disease Control for an experimental anti-amoeba drug. Doctors were at first unsure if the experimental drug would help, but there is no longer any trace of the amoeba in Kali’s spinal fluid.”
