Carrington Update NEW
Thank you to all of you who are praying so hard for Carrington! This little angel is stirring hearts big time! God has big plans for this child. Some of you have been asking for updates and the only update I have is that Shelly has been able to sneak home for the first time as her and Brian traded off between home and hospital. After not being able to keep down 10 ccs/hour, the doctors tried to take Carrington's feeds down to 5 ccs/hour and it was not successful. Poor Carrington was just not able to keep even that small amount down. Her body just has no idea what to do with the foreign substance :( The doctors are going to move the NG tube directly into her intestines and bi-pass 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. Shelly really feels Carrington is in great hands at the hospital they are at. I'm hoping to get a room number from Shelly so you can send a card or note of encouragement if you'd like.
