|Cupcake & Minnie waiting at the ER!|

Shortly after our arrival, her fever spiked enough to merit a dose of Tylenol. True to form, she perked right up for the rest of our stay, causing us to question, "Why are we here?!" With her fever down, she managed to fill the time contentedly singing, playing, watching TV, entertaining the hospital staff or curiously inquiring of every noise over the PA System. Thankfully, her internal chronometer reminded her body that it was supposed to be asleep, so she stayed in the hospital bed and was not anxious to get up and run around. It would have been a rather hectic experience if we were chasing her through the halls! On the other hand, it may have been a quicker visit had she been a bit more discontent....
Cupcake was fascinated with all the doctors and nurses. She didn't seem to mind being poked, prodded and stuck. In fact, she was almost intrigued by the whole ordeal. Perhaps she'll follow in the footsteps of her namesake and head into the field of medicine. The only tears came at the end of the visit when it was time to pull out the IV port. She didn't want to take off the cute splint they had given her, so the nurses kindly let her keep it. Cupcake was happy to use it as a sleeping bag for her mini Minnie Mouse!
