Well, the "tapping" showed that the ascites fluid is not infected.  So the plan is to treat this like it is cholangitis (that will make it #3 for her).  She is getting a PICC line right now.  Then they want to send us home on IV anti-biotics until the transplant.
After 2 full days, already her fevers are gone.  Her belly is a bit smaller, but I think that they will send us home on a diuretic.
Her mood has improved (even though she's been NPO (orders to have no food or drink) for 18 hours)! 
She continues to be my little German-Irish spit-fire.  She has gotten blood drawn 4 or 5 times now since we've been in-patient, and I've said it 100 times, I have no idea where she gets her temper from!
