Just a quick update on my little friend, Annalyssia. Many of my co-workers and I spent the day @ the hospital with her and her family. As it turns out she did have a pleural effusion(puss behind her lung) that had to be cleaned out by a surgical procedure (VATS procedure), rinsed out well and chest tube put in place. She was placed in the PICU for precautionary reasons but is doing much better. Her respiratory status is much better. She will be staying in the hospital for 5 days up to 2 weeks. Continue your prayers as she is still struggling with high fever and that the antibiotics work quickly to clear up her infection. Thanks!
