Today, we had some progress...
My girl. In a chair. For a couple of hours.
We're up to three walks today, already. She actually ate a small amount of lunch and drank more than a few sips of fluids.
Her temps have been more normal, though, as is fairly typical with kids, as we're getting toward evening, it's creeping back up again.
The doc that saw us today, gave me a bit more insight into why they're taking it so slow with our girl...although there was nothing "spilling" from her sickened appendix when they removed it, her insides told them something different. I read the op note today that said: "Acute appendicitis. Peritonitis. Suspect contained perforation."
I was informed (by yet ANOTHER incredible surgeon) that she is at very high risk of developing an abscess because of "how contaminated her abdominal cavity was".
Hoping for discharge tomorrow. But only if she's ready.
Currently, she's on her 2nd nap of the day.
Clearly, her body is weary from all of this.
(Just as I was about to upload the photo...my girl's temp started creeping up even more. I'm now afraid that we've been masking her fever with the pain meds we've been giving her and I'm torn as to how much we keep her comfy at the risk of masking signs that something is brewing...)
