Leah is now fully ventilated

Doc has been out to say that the procedure has been successful.
Leah is now on a ventilator & fully sedated.
The ventilator will do the breathing for her while we wait for the treatment to work.
They have also taken samples from her lungs to test for bacteria, viruses and fungi just to be absolutely sure that they have her on the right treatments.
After a day or two they will reduce the sedation so that she can be more aware of her surroundings while she is on the ventilator.
Doc says that patients usually adjust quite quickly to being on a ventilator & cope reasonably well with it.
