Good day

The upswing continues! Julia's appetite is back with a vengenance...for breakfast she had TWO yogurts, a small box of Cheerios and half a cup of milk. I was afraid it would come back up but nope, she held it all down. She's also...ahem...pooping. (Sorry for the TMI, but when you're in the hospital that's a big deal!) So that's a hurdle that's been crossed.

The only thing holding us up now...the darn fever! Still no cause for it, every test has been run that is possible so it either boils down to a drug fever caused by something she's on, or a bug that she's picked up during her stay. The Dilantin has been cancelled effective this afternoon, and fever is a potential side effect of that, so we'll soon see if that was the culprit.

Everyone is talking about Friday to release us so hopefully her fever is long gone by then.

Sounds like she is doing really well. Yay poop. Did they check for chemical meningitis. Someone mentioned it to me as a possible surgical complication when Emma had her post surgery fever.
