Hanging on...

Amelia improved this morning after a long nap. She has better energy and has kept some fluids down, although her fever remains high. We are waiting to see how she fares through the evening, which was her worst time during the last illness. If it is the same thing, we expect she'll get worse this evening, in which case we'll head to the ER.

Thanks for all your prayers. They mean so much to us. Normally it wouldn't be so scary on the first day of a child's illness - but remembering the last week-long saga has me shaking in my boots as I am in the final stages of preparing to leave.
