Aili is doing great. Her infection is called pseudomonas. It will require her to be on IV antibiotics for 7 days. We started the antibiotics on Monday night, so we should hopefully be done and allowed to come home early next week. They will just have to keep an eye on her and see if these antibiotics are working and doing their job! So far they seem to be. She doesn't have any fever and her white blood cell count is normal. I think they may take her dressing off tomorrow and see how her wound is looking. Right now it is covered with ionic silver that helps keep it clean, because it's antimicrobial and also keeps the area moist (in a good way). Then it is covered in a breathable bandage.

She seems to be in pretty good spirits, but of course would like to come home! Clay has been staying with her and I have been at home with the kids. All the kids and I went up with Clay tonight and ate dinner with Aili. I made Stromboli for us, which was great. After we ate and hung out a little, the rest of us came home.

The sucky thing is Aili is at the age, where since Clay is in the room she won't really nap or sleep like/when she should. I know she didn't nap today and when I called right before 11 pm tonight, she was still awake. She normally takes a nap after lunch everyday and then goes to bed at 8 pm.

Anyways, she seems to be doing great for the most part.
