Haley Caldwell began having severe diarrhea on October 15th. She was taken to Patty A. Clay Hospital in Richmond where she stayed for few days.
Two days later she was rushed to Kentucky Children's Hospital after her pediatrician diagnosed her with E.coli.
Haley is on a ventilator and doctors say she will remain on one for the next 48 hours.

Health officials are still investigating what may have made the Madison County girls sick.
