Bailey Jeanne...#8

We are going on 2 nights now of Bailey not having a fever...Thank you God! She still has pain in her hip when she walks, so they give her motrin when needed. The blood culture that they last took shows that it is negative, which means that the staph infection in her blood is going away. The bloodwork still shows that her CRP level is high (normal is below .8 and her level is 7) which means she has a bacterial infection somewhere and we know it's in her bone. Her appetite is definitely coming back - French Toast for breakfast today...whahoo!!
Right now they are waiting to see how the antibiotics will work on the infection. Her Dr. is also waiting to hear from the Orthopedic Dr. to see what he says about the fluid in her hip. Meaning...the two of them will talk to see if he thinks it's necessary to do anything besides the antibiotics (I don't want to say it...the "S" word-surgery) Pray that she won't have to go through that. They have told us that Bailey will have to be on Antibiotics for 4-6 weeks. They are talking about having a "pic line" put in so that we can give her antibiotic treatments at home.
Bailey likes reading the responses on her blog, it really brightens her day.
I'll post more when I know.
