Hospitalized from a recent E.coli outbreak, 6-year-old Olyvia Titus is back home in Forest Ranch.  Olyvia contracted E.coli after attending a firefighting fundraiser in Forest Ranch on September 6.  She was taken by helicopter to U.C. Davis Medical Center in Sacramento with acute renal failure.

After spending ten days in the hospital, doctors finally gave her the go-ahead Sunday night to come home. 

Her parents tell Action News Olyvia still has a long road to recovery.  Her platelet count is increasing rapidly, but there are still toxins in her body.  It could take several weeks before her parents know if there will be permanent damage.  If you would like to help the family with medical expenses, you can donate to the Olyvia Titus Medical Fund at any Tri-Counties Bank.
