Poor baby is hungry!  She is NPO (not allowed to eat) until surgery.  Just as she got her appetite back, too.  Surgery is scheduled for 1pm, so not too much longer.  We broke out her favorite treat, Sweet-Ease, to help hold her over with just a pacifier.

Good news so far:  No fevers overnight.  We hope that this means the antibiotics have taken effect and are beginning to control the infection. 

We are tired.  She is on a whole variety of IV antibiotics, and they run one after another all day and night, it seems.  With her more frequent vitals and neuro checks, we have some kind of beeping, alarming, crying or interruptions constantly.  It is hard to have her be woken up for vitals as soon as she falls asleep, but they need good monitoring before surgery.  She is tired too, so hopefully she will just snooze until she gets to the OR.
