Results of the infection came back as a type of Staph. Luckily it is not the kind that is resistant to antibiotics, and she has started 4-6 weeks of I.V. antibiotics. The good news is that we shouldn't have to stay in the hospital that long, as she can go home with the PICC line and continue the meds. So we are giving her a couple days to rest up and then we will start physical therapy again. She actually was talkative and ate and drank better today then she has been the whole time. It is believed that she has had this infection from day one after surgery and that is to blame for her irritability. It has been difficult to deal with a toddler who can't tell you exactly how she feels. It's upsetting that it took so long for us to catch on. She never manifested any real symptoms like fever or strange vitals so again she is a rare case. We are tired of being unique.
