Lyla stopped breathing today and they did CPR and had to intubate to bring her back. They have her medically paralyzed because they want her completely relaxed. Please pray for her; positive vibes, she needs all she can get right now.

They are starting Lyla's 2nd round of chemo today. They are changing her chemo regimen from here on out because her tumor did not shrink like they were hoping to see.

The drug they are adding can be hard on her heart, even though it is a less common side effect of this drug, they are giving her another medicine to help protect her little heart, but there are some risk. By adding this drug we are hoping and praying to see a success. Please keep Lyla in your thoughts and prayers.
