Judith is sick. Really sick. We don't know what it is exactly yet, but we do know it's bacterial. They're also going to keep an eye out in case there's something viral as well, although that's not looking likely right now.

She was doing fine yesterday, except for all of the desats, which we now know were subtle cues she was giving us that something just wasn't right. She went downhill fast - she was ok when I was here, but refused her bottle completely at 3. I left at 3:30, and by 4:30 they moved her to the other side of the NICU, started antibiotics, called the doctor to come and examine her, and ran tests for all possible infections/viruses.

She certainly doesn't look like my happy little baby right now.

The one comfort I have is they caught it early, started antibiotics right away, and they can continue to treat it with antibiotics.

Thank God she was still in the NICU when it happened.
