Stupid Influenza :/

Emily had a rough night Monday night and is now on 3L of O2 to keep her sats above 94%. We ramped up her respiratory treatments to Q2 (every 2 hours) and continuing antibiotics. The suggestion is that she has a super infection on top of Influenza, so antibiotics are important at this point. They also took her IV out last night and now they're gonna have to get another one going b/c we may need better hydration and nutrition if we can't keep her calorie intake up enough b/c of all the treatments. We stop feeds during these treatments so she gets way behind, and that is really not good for her.

So, needless to say, we won't be going home today. That sucks.

Please keep her and us in your prayers.

Peace <><

Lee Family,
Sorry to hear that Emily has something else going on. We have been praying for her and will continue. She is a strong fighter and you are amazing parents. I'm glad to hear that you found a hospital that works more with you for Emily's benefit. Sicknesses are tough enough without battles.

Sending some germ-free cyber hugs to all of you from Chicago!

Love your friends,
Tina, Ally and Family
