Jesse is an 8 year old boy who was admitted to the PICU for pneumonia and Influenza A. For days upon admission, he was very brave as he experienced many medical procedures and tests. He even kept a positive attitude as his respiratory status declined rapidly. After many respiratory interventions, Jesse had to be placed on a ventilator to help him breathe. He stayed on the breathing machine for over 9 days. He has begun to recover although he still requires oxygen and remains in isolation.
