Kennedy finally woke up around 30 minutes ago. She just sat up and said HI! She ate some more crackers and is now watching Hannah Montana. She is in pretty good spirits but still has a low grade fever. Neurology is saying they don't think this is surgery related (though her surgeon still thinks it probably is). The ped that's following her today came back in with the doctor from the Down syndrome clinic here which was good. They've been talking and are going to consult a geneticist to make sure there's nothing they're missing. The other thing is her blood work shows her bi-carb is low, and when she was hospitalized back in October it was low then as well. They said that it could be something with her kidneys, maybe a side effect from chemo. They are going to talk to Nephrology (kidney doctor) and have them come see her. They ran a bunch more blood work just a few minutes ago and they're testing her urine as well.
I'm glad to see her awake and interacting! Hopefully they'll figure something out soon!
