My daughter has spent her birthday...

In the hospital hooked up to a ventilator. 

She vomited during the night, aspirated it, and her apnea alarm failed to go off. When I woke up, she was grey and using her whole body to breathe. I took her into the ER and they immediately gave her a ton of anti seizure medicines and intubated her. 

After being transferred to Children's Mercy, they did an MRI. The deterioration of her brain is extremely profound. 

They are trying to extubate her (remove the breathing tube) tonight. If she cannot breathe on her own, then that pretty much seals the deal. 

I truly doubt she will come home again.

I'm so sorry Ashley. I have kept you and your daughter in my prayers.
I have no words of comfort to offer because I know at a time like this there is no point in it. But I will continue to keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
