When Carrington's family got her home they realized just how dire her need was. She is 3 and weighs only ELEVEN POUNDS!!!! When they undressed her for the first time what they saw devastated them.
|This is what was under all the layers of clothes...|
The doctors are working non-stop on Carrington. They have had some trouble keeping anything down her. Her sweet body doesn't know how to handle food.
At first Carrington could not hold down even 10ccs/hour. The doctors moved the NG tube directly into her intestines and bi-passed the stomach in hopes that her body will be able to absorb some of the nutrition and not continue throwing it all right back up. At this point, Carrington has not gained any weight, but she has not lost any either!! This is great news. And she is also finally holding her feeds at 10ccs/hour. This is an improvement!
Please pray for this sweet girl and her family. They also brought home another baby girl and the mother has yet to be able to spend time with her. They are all exhausted and stressed but they know the Lord brought them to Carrington for the very reason of saving her life. They love this new daughter of theirs and will do anything to make her better. It will be a LONG process but they're willing to fight! God will not leave them. Don't forget them in your prayers and I'll be sure to update when I can!
