MacKenzie Smith- Treatment/medical bills

Mackenzie has had Chron's disease since she was 8 and is now 14. She has been struggling with it a lot the last 5 weeks. She has been on massive amounts of medicines, had multiple scans, lab work, doctor visits and this last week an MR Enterography scan, This scan showed she has so much inflammation in her intestines that her levels are elevated, she has a stricture in her intestines and a partial blockage. She had surgery, found masses but not cancerous, Thank God but she has been admitted since surgery. She has a blockage somewhere, they aren't sure of exact location as of right now. This is not allowing any food to pass her stomach. She vomits with anything other than liquid. They are feeding her a liquid medicine through a NG tube into her stomach through her nose to clean out her intestines that aren't working currently by themselves. She has no bowel sounds. Nothing is functioning in her digestive system currently. She is still hooked up on the meds. They have no idea how long this will take, there is no way to prevent it from happening again. They won't do an invasive open abdominal surgery unless her bowels begin to die. She's still throwing up off and on. They are considering feeding her TPN through a pic line if no improvement during the next 24 hours. They would have to first give her the pic line since her current Iv isn't set up for internal feeding. 


This is really hard on Kenzie as well as the family, we all know how fast medical bills add up and the financial strain. Any help would be so appreciative and your prayers as well. 
Thank you for your support and God Bless!
