Back to the Hospital

Earlier this morning Chandra, Jessica, and Jacob caught a flight back to Salt Lake. Jessica had a fever in the night that caused some worry. It looks like she will have to have chest tubes put back in to drain fluid from her lungs and will also need fluid drained from the area where her kidney was removed because of an infection in that area. She's been readmitted to Primary Children's for the time being.

This whole experience has just been a roller coaster. Things start looking up and then they take a turn, but that's just how it goes. Jessica is a tough little girl who we all love very much. We love Jessica and her whole family and are praying for the best.

**Update: It doesn't look like she'll need chest tubes, but does still need fluid drained from her kidney area.
