Sierra isnt doing good. We had another care conference this morning and found out our options. She has been given a mega dose of the steroid to help open up her lungs and get the settings down. She has maxed the settings on the oscillator. She is getting baptized this afternoon. Its all a waiting game as the outcome is still unknown. We were given an 8% chance of survival at this point. Her kidneys are failing and she is very puffy right now but resting comfortably and isnt in any pain. Please keep her in your thoughts as she continues to fight

Thanks everyone for the kind thoughts and prayers. The power of prayer is amazing and it looks like we are seeing small improvements. She is peeing alot this evening which is a good indication that her kidneys are somewhat working. Breathing wise nothing has changed but she is getting more stable as the hours go on. We are hoping she loses some of the 13oz of water weight she put on over the past 3 days. Its baby steps in the right direction. Thanks again to all of you wonderful mamas
