Clara was born at 33 weeks and spent 23 days in the NICU. On December 1st she was admitted to St. Francis Medical center in Cape Girardeau MO for RSV and two other viruses. Over the next few days her ability to breathe decreased and she was intubated and transported by ambulance to Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital in St. Louis MO. There she was intubated for 5 days and then transferred to the transitional care unit. Clara was then sent back to the PICU for increased difficulty breathing and was reintubated. She was taken off the ventilator on December 18th and we are hoping she is discharged sometime in the next week or so.
