Avery woke up with a massive overload of diarehha. Poor baby, she was so mad that she was dirty. Thank goodness I had Barbara here to help me. She did all the dirty work for us and gave Avery a sponge bath.
They took Avery off the IV fluids so she can get up and walk around. I took her into the Play Room and she rode the little horse and her favorite Police Car.
Bad news... Avery's urine shows that she has E.Coli growing inside. She has a very bad urinary tract infection which was causing the spike in fever, shivering and red splotching all over her body. She will need to continue to be monitored and be treated with antibiotics in her IV. Since she was having diarehha for the past 2 weeks and her little body is immune surpressed, bacteria must have got in and she was unable to fight it off.
She may be here for another night. When she leaves, she will be on antibiotics for at least 14 days to help her get rid of this.
Avery is very unhappy today and wants to go home. She keeps asking me, "go home, PLLLEEAASSEEE" poor baby. Raul has been here during the day but is going home at night to be with Alexa. Avery gets very said when Raul leaves and she misses her sister.
I'll keep you update. Keep the prayers coming, we really appreciate it all. xoxo, Marissa
