VANCOUVER, Wash. -- The infant daughter of Washington state U.S. Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler is back home in Camas this week after spending months under the supervision of doctors in California.
Herrera Beutler's first child, Abigail Rose Beutler, was born prematurely in July with Potter's syndrome, a kidney and lung condition that's typically fatal. She received dialysis treatments at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital in Palo Alto, Calif., and will eventually need a kidney transplant.
The Columbian reported Wednesday that Herrera Beutler is asking for "continued patience and prayers in the coming weeks as our family adjusts to life back home."
The Republican congresswoman, who has been on leave since her daughter's birth, also announced she would travel to Washington, D.C., to vote on a federal budget deal. She had previously returned to take some votes, including one in October to end the partial government shutdown.
