When I last posted, Olivia had been steadily doing better and we had started to breathe a sigh of relief. She was taken off the ventilator and the jet, medications were being dialed back and stopped and she kept looking better and better.

Soon after that at the beginning of this week, she began having some roadblocks to her progress. She's had seizures and was put back on a ventilator. She has continued to get slowly worse again and developed necrotizing colitis yesterday (not sure on the spelling). Her intestines are not processing any of the breast milk and a surgeon has looked at her. Please pray for our sweet little baby - she is just really struggling right now.
