Carter is making steps in the right direction. Yesterday morning Carter's incision, where they had to cut him to place the GJ tube started draining. The on call surgeon came in and removed the steri strips. The incision immediately opened and infection started pouring out. It was extremely painful for Carter, although it has made a HUGE difference. Within 45 minutes Carter's color started to improve. He started to try to sit up and even wanted to play for a few minutes. We had visitors later that day and Carter put on a show. He waved and smiled and even passed around his toys. He is gradually getting back to himself. Praise God!
Carter is still not completely pain free, although he is a million times better! Carter's incision is still draining. He seems to be having more "normal" after surgery pain. It has been absolutely wonderful to see him wanting to sit up, smile and play. Our surgeon is working out all of the details to get us to Cincinnati Children's Hospital. We are praying Carter will be able to transfer in the next week or two and we can get him started on the right track.
Your prayers have been very evident in the past 48 hours. Carter still has a long way to go and we are asking for continued prayers. Please pray God will continue to heal Carter. Carter will fight the infection and have a smooth transition to Cincinnati Children's. We are truly blessed to have such great followers of Carter's Journey!
