    Well, The infection turned out to be staph(sp?), and particularly nasty. It's one of those antibiotic-resistant strains you hear about on the news. There's only one effective medicine for it at her age, and she has to have it via IV every six hours. So, she has to stay in the hospital. At least 2 more days, and maybe up to 10 days, the doc said.
    On a positive note, she's back to her old self. The downside to this is,she's going stir crazy. She's been walking well for about 2 months now, and running for the last month. Now she's stuck in a 10x14 room. We've been walking her up and down the corridors, but it doesn't cut it. The staff has also been having trouble keeping her IVs in, since she's so active.
    I'm really worried that the time in the hospital is going to slow her development. There just isn't a way to get her the level of mental stimulation she needs while she's in there.

    Antibiotic resistant Staphylococcal infections are way too common - and it is more of a prob' with kids and aged folks. In fact - one reason is the profligate over-use of anti-bio's over a long time .... darned bugs are becoming very resistant.

    News sounds very good tho and I guess they need to make sure all is well before release. It is understandable she will be fractious and bored - that ain't easy to deal with but - as for ''slowed development'' .... don't sweat it.! Once she is free of those bonds she'll be just fine and I can see no long term effect being evident at all.

    Take it from a father of a 25 year old daughter and a proud grandpa of a new 6 mo old baby girl, kids are very resilient. Sounds like the worst is over and she's on the upslide and just waitin' for her walkin' papers. The reality is, she's probably handling it better than her dad Wouldn't worry much about any long-term effects...it's only the beginning!
