Wednesday morning when getting Alex ready for school miss lily (2 years old) just went completely limp and stopped breathing. Hubby did CPR while we were waiting on the ambulance. And have been in the PICU sense. Last night they were finally able to tell what happened , her infectious disease panel came back she had influenza b her rapid test was negative. The flu caused her arrest. We know she is severly brain damaged from what the flu did to her ( yes she had her flu shot) she won't be able to walk talk have emotion eat on her own will probably need a breathing tube we know what decision is coming it's just a matter of time we are also ok ( well not ok but you know) that we will have to take her off of support at some point probably this week . We are telling our 7 year old Alex probably today which is going to be so beyond hard he loves his sissy and to top off this crap I'm 15 weeks preggo

There aren't words that will come close to comforting you right now, I'm sure.

I am so very sorry. I had a candle lit and a prayer said for your family this morning at Holy Cross Church in NYC. I hope knowing that people are praying for you all gives you at least some comfort.
