Thanks and keep praying!

Thanks so much for all of the love and support and prayers for us. You have no idea how much it means to us!

Maddie is still intubated (on a ventilator) and still requires medicine to keep her blood pressure at an acceptable level. She is also on alot of sedation to try to keep her comfortable with a tube in her throat. She is waking up alot and fighting to try to get the tube out. The bacterial infection she is fighting is very serious and the doctors are doing all they can. The best news we have heard is that they are “cautiously optimistic” that Maddie may make it through this.

Please continue to keep her on your prayers and I will do my best to update as the situation allows.
