Update...

The evening was truly a great evening. Once the IV team got the IV in and all medicines began flowing she was a new little girl. She charmed all of the nurses and doctors that came through. When the fever came down there were never any seizure activities again. She took all her feedings through her button and tolerated them well. I don't think she has ever remembered having diarrhea (don't think she has had it but once when she was a tiny baby) and each time she had it last night she would laugh. I think it gave her such a different sensation. Sorry for the visual! Today will be more testing. They did find from the chest x-ray that she has infiltrations on both sides. She has no wheezing, coughing etc. The cardiologist came yesterday evening and said he believe it is just her bicuspid aortic valve that we are already aware of and he thinks the increase sounds are due to the high fever and her agitation. So he will do an echo today to see what is with that. She will also have an EEG due to the seizure like activity. I am fairly confident that this was only due to the fever. They will do the normal urine test to see how well it is responding. She is being given Rocephin which is a very broad spectrum antibiotic. This morning she will have a very special visitor, Nana Loma. She hasn't seen her in a few weeks so she will be surprised. Will follow up with a picture.

I'm sorry to hear that you are in the hospital, I know those hospital days are hard. I have been praying for you and Annabel. I will be praying that the rocephin helps the UTI. It cleared Dawson's UTI up when he was in the hospital 2 weeks ago, but it definately messes up his little tummy and gives him diarrhea. (so differant for him too) He had a fever of 105.3 rectally and it scared me bad but he never had any seizures thankfully he just got really scared. Thank you so much for blogging I think about you guys all of the time. Praying for you, Renae & Dawson
