They are also treating her for sepsis. At this point, it is in her blood stream and affecting her respiratory system. They are watching her very closely and she will stay in the PICU for the foreseeable future. They are also running lots of frequent labs. We are waiting to meet with the infectious disease team. Abby is awake, alert, and feisty. When Matt took a monitor lead sticker off without warning her, she yelled, you took the darn sticker off!!" So she's sick, but still sassy. :).
Our girl could really use your prayers. I've often said we live "in the woods" and are never really out of it, but this is a scary time. It is so easy to allow our minds to go to dark places, but we are fighting to stay positive and proactive. We are thankful for every sassy thing that comes out of Abby's mouth right now!!
