Update - 3/25, 12:37am
We just got a call from the NICU. Clara's oxygen stats aren't getting up where they would like to see them, so she's going to be put on ECMO in the next hour or so. Chrissy and I are discouraged, but OK. We didn't want her to need ECMO, but are very grateful that she has it as a resource to fall back on now that she does need it. We are praying that this will give her an opportunity to turn the corner and start to improve. Please pray for her to respond well and get better. Neither of us has ever felt the longing that we feel now to have her get better and come home to us. It's hard to process at times that she is in a very serious fight for her life; she looks so perfect and beautiful on the outside.
Chrissy and I are going to try to get some rest. If you're still up, please pray on our behalf. We love this girl.
