"Thank you so much for those prayers. They have lifted us up," Santorum told a group of Florida voters on a tele-town hall he held Sunday evening. He added that his daughter was "alert" after what he described as a "very, very tough night" for his family on Saturday. She is currently wearing a mask to assist her breathing, and is expected to spend between two and four more days in the hospital, he said.

Bella, 3, was born with a severe genetic abnormality that claims the lives of most children within a year of birth.
