Second District Supervisor Estelle Fennell is coming out of the hospital today after a particularly nasty bout with E. coli.
In a statement released today, Fennell said she's one of five people in the county who came down with a "virulent E. coli strain" infection, which is not being considered an outbreak by Public Health because no common source of infection has been identified.
Fennell had an unexpected complication, leading to the long hospital stay. The TS
reported last month that Fennell had been hospitalized since at least Oct. 15.
Says the release:
I want to again convey my deepest thanks for all of the support, prayers and well wishes, and I will be back to work soon. I still have some steps to take on the road to full recovery but I want my constituents to know that I am in daily contact with my staff and colleagues and that your calls and emails will continue to be answered and issues in our district addressed.
