Kayli is not doing well this week

Kayli is not doing so well this week.  She stayed home from school again today, because she is wheezing, and her heart rate is higher than usual.  She is requiring a lot of sleep, oxygen, and Tylenol.  She appears to have abdominal pain (she kicks, and pushes us away, when we touch her stomach), so we checked for a UTI (urinary tract infection).  We are having to catheterize her right now, and the with Cath's can come UTIs.  Her results came back positive, so she is on 2 antibiotics.  We are not sure why she is having such difficulty breathing.  Could be from a virus, or maybe from her significant spinal issues (now at an alarming, life threatening stage).  She does not have a fever, but she appears to be very ill.  Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers, as we try to figure out how best to help Kayli.  We hope to get her well in time for her upcoming spine surgery.  Thank you! <3
