My Baby Girl Is Sick

My 28 year old daughter went into the hospital yesterday with flu-like symptoms made worse by her asthma. She sounded worse than I've ever heard her sound before. Until today, that is. Now she sounds worse than I've ever heard her before.

During the night she was transferred to the progressive care unit. She's coughing blood. They don't know what she has exactly but with her high white blood cell count they know her body is fighting an infection. Although x-rays didn't show pneumonia or bronchitis she does have some fluid in her lungs. She was tested for H1N1 so at least it's not that.

She said they want to give her something to relax her so she can get better rest. She said there's talk of her maybe being intubated.

My baby girl is very sick. =(

Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers. Let's send her lot of blogger love.
