Autumn was diagnosed with Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS), a disorder that attacks the kidneys, which she developed from contracting E. Coli. She was moved from the local ER to Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital where she has remained in the ICU for the past 3.5 weeks struggling to regain her kidney function. Through a rigorous course of dialysis treatments, countless medications, a seizure, intubations on a ventilator, and eventually developing pneumonia in the hospital, Autumn has been fighting for recovery and her journey is far from over. She continues everyday with her whole family by her side in their tiny hospital room, including her one year old brother and newborn sister.
