We need a ton of prayers

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

Chelle --

Haven't been on this board in a while, but came here for some reason today and saw your post. I was active on this board (and another you were on) when you were trying to have Alex all thru when you had Lily). My heart goes out to you and your family. Like a PP, I'm also in your city -- and if you need anything, let me know. I can't imagine losing a child.
