Oklahoma girl continues recovery from E. coli poisoning

An 8-year-old Green Country girl continues to recover from E. coli poisoning.

Cady Daugherty was hospitalized last month. Since then, she was placed on a ventilator and dialysis. She also spent several weeks in the intensive care unit.

Now, Daugherty is out of the ICU and returning to her old form. “This is crazy good,” said her mother, Karla Crum. “This is the best thing in the world.”

2NEWS contacted the Oklahoma Department of Health to inquire about an investigation into how Daugherty contracted the poisoning. A spokeswoman would not confirm an ongoing investigation and she also said she could not comment, if one was underway.
