The hospital! Oh fun!!

That is what I think Livia is thinking every time she gets to watch cartoons, is given a Popsicle, and gets lots of attention! Yep, we are at the Childrens Hospital. After I posted my last blog entry, I called her Dr.'s office to ask if it was normal for her eye to swell shut from the infection.

Ummm....apparently not.

"Take her to the emergency room as soon as you can" they told me.

After pokes, prods and a CAT scan, they decided to start antibiotics and keep here. There is an abscess under her swollen eye. After an Ophthalmologist and an ENT Doctor saw her, they decided to give her one more day on the antibiotics and she how she reacted.


There is more.

If they decide to go in and drain her abscess, they will also:
*Remove her adnoids
*Put tubes in her ears
*Stick a camera up her nose, in her sinuses, and do something to a bone there


She is sleeping now, and in the morning the same doctors will return to re-evaluate her. They will decide if it is time for surgery or if the antibiotics worked and we can go home.

PRAY for the latter.

Good night!
