Well, we got sent home (HOORAY!) to wait and try to "ride out" the infection at home. We were told to leave our hospital bags packed, in case she starts getting worse over the weekend, but the doctor said, "Wow...she is awfully fiesty, even when she's this sick, so I am thinking an I.V. is out of the question." (That's my girl!) So we are administering medicines at home, trying to con her into staying hydrated using popsicles, chocolate milk, juice and all manner of sugary goodness, and giving lots of "mama care."
So, thank you all for your sweet wishes the past couple of days. We have our fingers crossed for a hospital-free weekend.
