Latest Levi Update from Mom
He’s in good spirits.
He’s smile is holding me up.
I feel like it’s him being strong for me, instead of the other way around.
I’ve started and stopped this writing this post 10 times bc it’s still hard to say out loud or even type.
But I need help I need prayers I need a miracle!
Levi’s hands are 2nd and 3rd degree burns, his palms are 2nd but all his fingers are all 3rd degree. The surgeon said unfortunately he had to shave a lot deeper than he anticipated to find healthy tissue that would pink and bleed. His fear now is the finger tips he placed placenta pieces on top of his tips and the cadaver skin on top of that in hopes that will rejuvenate and restore blood to the tips, if not.... he could potentially lose the tips of his fingers at the first nuckle
Now we wait pray and hope.
The doctor said he has had success in burns using donated placenta pieces to restore skin and sometimes not. But he has hope.
So now we wait, pray, hope and keep my baby man as happy as I can!
We were being discharged and feeling hopeless and all packed up then the surgeon came back in at the last min & said he consulted with the general surgeon here and they would like to try to place him in a hyperbaric oxygen chamber to attempt to get more blood flow to his finger tips.
He said Levi would be the youngest and first attempt at this being a 14 month old burn patient it’s not normally used for but he said he wants to save his fingers and that this and the placenta are boosting the chances! He said it may not work but it wouldn’t hurt to try!
The general surgeon will be in in the morning, and we will know more.
The doctors surgeons and staff are doing everything they can to save his fingers and keep him comfortable. But what they can’t help with is loss wages from work and gas food and the medical bills.
Please if you have it to spare anything to help this family to ease their suffering just a bit.
If you don’t have it to give them send up a prayer for baby Levi James Robertson.
