Emily had an amazing birthday party. So many of our special friends made it and she got some lovely gifts. We are very lucky to have so many great people who love our girl! The next day we went to the Mattel Children's Hospital Party on the Pier, and it was a blast. Wednesday Emily had outpatient surgery to scope her Mitrofanoff and dilate it. They did a ton of bloodwork beforehand, and they called Thursday morning to say that she had a positive blood culture. So in we went to the ER, for repeated cultures. I've been told already that the repeat culture was positive as well. I haven't seen any doctors today, so I don't know the plan. No one has started her on antibtotics yet, so I don't know what the stay will be like. It would be great to go home wit IV antibiotics, but with her history of sepsis with no fever, I doubt they will let us. Please keep Emily in your thoughts and prayers. This is admit 19 I believe, since March of this year. It's a lot for one little girl!
