Today Carter had another surgery on his intestine. It was a more intense surgery than we had once expected, although we were very happy with the news we received. Carter had an EXTRA 15cm of colon! When he was born he only had 15cm. Our surgeon had to make two large incisions and we are praying they can remain infection free. Carter is currently in a room in the PICU Step-Down Unit. His heart rate continues to be very elevated, his fever remains high, and he is requiring oxygen at this time. Carter is having trouble getting comfortable and he is very restless. This is definitely the worst we have seen him since his NICU stay at birth. The doctors believe it will be several days before he is able to eat and they will continue to monitor him closely. Your continued prayers are much needed and most certainly appreciated.
