Pneumonia and pleurisy

Last evening was tough for Miss K. She was a pretty sick kiddo. So she has bacterial pneumonia in the right middle lobe. She also has pleurisy in that lung as well and it causes her a lot of pain. She is on 8 liters of high flow oxygen to help with her breathing to help with that lung because it is also partially collapsed. Her CRP 37.6 so she has a good infection brewing. We will likely be here for a few days. Thanks for checking in on us. Praying she can get better quick so she can get that new heart!

Oh yuck. This is not what you guys need right now. We will continue to pray, not only that K gets her new heart, but that her lungs can make a speedy recovery! Hang in there!

I am so sorry Shauntelle. I 100% would have visited you today but with Jacob I just can not chance pneumonia (the poor kid's lungs are no bueno against anything respiratory!) I thought of you guys and are praying K will make a quick recovery and then get that heart!
