THE Wilkinson family needs Gladstone's prayers as three-year-old Abi fights to recover from a major setback on Sunday.

A partially collapsed lung and brain seizure has little Abi fighting for her life.

Showing strength beyond her years, Abi has time and again defied death after she was left a quadriplegic on April 4 after a horrific head-on collision in Logan.

The region has donated to the Dig Deep for Abi appeal which is close to the $50,000 mark.

Her determined support network led by mother Tanya and father Paul, continues to keep a bedside vigil.

"She has had a very, very rough three weeks since her last surgery," Mrs Wilkinson said.

"It's been a major setback to her health.

"We are very lucky she has no permanent brain damage as a result of the seizure.

"She now needs time to recover which will be very slow."

The health complications were believed to have stemmed from poor ventilation.

It will take a minimum of four weeks for her lungs to start to recover.
