Hospital Sitting

It's almost midnight here. Mia seems to be doing a bit better. She might be sleeping still, if it had not been time for vitals to be taken, prompting her nurse to come and wake her with the thermometer, blood pressure cuff and another round of IV antibiotics. I tried to nurse her back to sleep, and for a while succeeded, until I transferred her back to her bed....well, to the bouncy seat I have sitting in her bed. Because we all know Mia never sleeps in a bed, unless it's mine. Now I'm listening to her try to put herself back to sleep, sort of whining and half crying. I'm trying to give her a few minutes to work it out on her own before picking her back up again. I can tell from her voice that she's really tired, and is just fighting the sleep.
Her temp had risen back up to 103 around 8:00 this evening but after some Tylenol, its gone again. Though I can tell she still doesn't feel great.
Tomorrow morning she gets an ultrasound of her kidneys to make sure they look okay. Then hopefully we'll go home possibly pending a repeat of labs to look at her white cells again.
updated to say that I'm now blogging with one hand while Mia nurses in my arms-apparently she didn't want to put herself back to sleep. I've rocked, cuddled, bounced and nursed her for much of the day.
I've talked to my other nine a few times as well and spoke to all the babies on speaker phone to say goodnight. I don't enjoy being away from them. Even though it is very quiet here, the accommodations are lovely; our room is very well appointed, much like a nice hotel with medical equipment, and since I'm a nursing mom, they keep on feeding me!
I've also taken the opportunity to work on some homework and watch old clips of The Ali G show on you-tube. I've taken a few pics of Mia with her sad little I.V. hand on Albert's cell phone. If I knew how to upload them I would do it, but I don't so I'll have to wait till I get home and Albert can show me.
So, basically just hospital sitting. Hoping for an uneventful night and that her fever stays away, her ultrasound looks good in the morning and that her white cell count doesn't rise anymore. I'll keep everyone updated on any changes...

Hope you're sprung in the morning!
Know that you're always in my thoughts and prayers!
Psalms 142:1-3a I cried unto the LORD with my voice; with my voice unto the LORD did I make my supplication. I poured out my complaint before him; I shewed before him my trouble. When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then thou knewest my path.

Oh I hope you're sprung soon! Little one should be HOME where she belongs!
Lifting up prayers!
Psalms 142:5-7 I cried unto thee, O LORD: I said, Thou art my refuge and my portion in the land of the living. Attend unto my cry; for I am brought very low: deliver me from my persecutors; for they are stronger than I. Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise thy name: the righteous shall compass me about; for thou shalt deal bountifully with me.
