According to Erin's mother, Amber, the girl developed cholangitis, which is caused by a bacterial infection in the bile ducts.

Erin is at the UCLA Medical Center. The family moved to California earlier this summer.

Erin is sleeping a lot and not eating well, her mother stated in a recent email.

Erin, 9, was born with a rare liver disease called biliary atresia (See a May 16, 2009 Sun Tribune story about Erin's battle against the disease).
