Back In PICU

We admitted Kiera last night. She was very acidotic (high Co2 levels in her blood). She's on the big hospital ventilator right now and on I.V. fluids and a little Pedialyte. We're waiting on stool cultures. We're not really sure what is wrong. It may be just backlash from the virus she seemed to catch on Memorial Day or something else. Her pulmonologist still has to see her today. Her upper right lobe of her lung is very cloudy on her x-ray. I guess the easiest explanation is that she is just "funky." Hopefully this will be a short stay...maybe 4 or 5 days.

So sad to read this but praying you guys are out of there soon!

I'm so sorry. Hurry and get better, Kiera!

Therese, you're in my prayers and I will be praying for Kiera.

Just wanted to say that I am thinking of you and your family. We have been through a few scares the past couple of weeks with our son Noah and we are still trying to ride things out here at home. I'm not sure you know who I am but I am one of the moms from the Yahoo! group.

Take care!

Michelle Hanna, mom to Noah and Jonah, 23.6 weekers
