There's a happy update about the mom and baby infected with a rare flesh-eating bacteria. Bree Drips and her newborn son Hunter came down with Necrotizing Fasciitis just days after she gave birth. 

We first told you about the Drips family last week on 10News. Since then we've learned that Hunter is out of the NIC-U and home with his family. 

Bree is on the road to recover, she just found out that the bacteria is out of her system and she is expected to be home by the new year. 


Firefighters and friends set up this account for the family and a local crossfit gym is holding a workout fundraiser for the family on Saturday, December 17th. 

The workout is from 8 a.m. to noon, with a $10 drop-in donation. The gym is located at 14401 Bond Ct. in El Cajon. For questions call Nick at (619) 922-0190.
