Uh-Oh, FEVER

Today was a wonderful day until about 6:00 PM. The happy, joyful Lilly is back! She is feeling much better today and has started charming the doctors and nurses again! Her chest tube came out at 1:00 today. We have had lots of cuddle time since all the tubes are gone now! They did another ECHO to check her heart and a chest x-ray. The ECHO showed a small pocket of fluid in her chest. The doctor said this was common after her procedure and the fluid should be absorbed by her body soon. The chest x-ray was fine. The plan was for her to be discharged in the AM. However, David called at 6:00 to say she had a fever of 101.3 and her white blood cell count was high. She will need IV antibiotics now. They are running tests to rule out possible sources of the infection. She is still happy and playing so she is obviously not feeling bad at this point. We are praying that the source of infection will respond quickly to the antibiotics so that we can get our girl home.
