Lillian is in the PICU at Texas Children's

Friends & Family,

Lauren wanted me to ask you all to pray for Lillian.  She has been in the PICU at TCH since Thursday night.  I will try to update as we know more.

On Wednesday, Lauren took Lilli to her pediatrician. She put her on breathing treatments, antibiotics and had her blood drawn because she's been wheezy. She got worse overnight and very lethargic so on Thursday, Lauren decided it was too much.  She took her to a free standing ER and they called the pediatrician and she had her admitted to Texas Children's. Lillian was taken by ambulance to TCH.

At 3:10 on Friday morning, Lillian was sedated and intubated because they couldn't calm her breathing.  She also had a higher than normal temperature, high blood pressure, low 02 levels and high white blood count.

On Friday at 6:15 pm, Lillian’s blood tests had been run, X-rays complete and an EKG done.  All came back more or less "good". The doctors assume she caught a virus and just couldn't handle it with her tiny body. She is fighting hard. She is still completely sedated and intubated.

At 9:00 am today, Lauren was told that Lillian is running a higher temperature.  She feels awful because she slept all night.  Doctors are trying to say that her temperature is up because she is under her blankey, but Lauren knows what her normal temps are and they are not 100-101.

At 10:00 am today, we found out from Lauren that she is looking at another 10 days in the PICU. Lillian’s temps are higher; she has lots of phlegm, and dry diapers. They can't decrease the ventilation settings at all today because she isn't tolerating it well.

Please continue to pray for this precious baby and her mom.
