Abigail was not consistently taking breaths tonight. So they had to intabate her. That means she is now on a ventilator. There is a tube down her trachea. The machine was not providing any extra oxygen, just doing all the work of physically breathing. We were there when they had to do it. They said that parents shouldn't watch their child get intabated, so we didn't see it happen.

They are going to check for infections, check her blood gas levels, and took another chest xray. That's all we know right now.

I can so identify with your feelings about Abigail's hospital stay. The waiting for Eric to come home was so hard.

She is a beautiful girl, touch her for me.
