Pneumonia & Ventilator

Apparently Sierra has pneumonia in addition to the viral infection. Her lungs are pretty congested. The bipap machine that they had her on was not effective enough. This morning she had some serious drops in her vital statistics. It gave us quite a scare. They got her stabalized again but have decided that it is time to put her on a ventilator.

The doctor is also going to check her heart as well.

Please be praying that the pneumonia would clear up soon and that her breathing would improve. Also pray that God would give us all strength.

I know ventilator's can be really scary, but it could be a really good thing for her! It does all of the work for her so more energy can be focused on healing. I will continue to keep Sierra in my prayers today.
