The next day the family was abruptly flown to the Denver Children's hospital via flight for life as Carley had been born with some internal medical conditions and complications requiring immediate surgery. Carley has been diagnosed with VACTERL association (also known as VATER syndrome), Tethered cord, and Biliary Atresia. While in Denver, Carley endured two extensive surgeries, one on her esophagus and windpipe to treat one of the symptoms of Vater Syndrome and the other on her Liver called The Kasai procedure to treat the Biliary Atresia.
Finally, after three long weeks in the hospital recovering, Carley was released to finish her recovery from home in hopes that she would gain weight and strength to prepare her for the multiple surgeries she is yet to face once she is strong enough. Weight gain has been slow for little Carley, but she is progressing (now weighing 9 pounds 13 ounces) and gaining strength.
Carley is an amazing little beauty and continues to show great strength as she grows. Her brother, Izzy, and her parents love and adore her.
Her family and friends are trying to help the French family by asking for financial support for both Carley and her parents. Please consider donating to help with Carley's extensive medical bills that have been steadily accruing since her birth and will continue to accrue throughout her upcoming surgeries and life. If you are unable to donate we are grateful for any prayers or positive thoughts you have to offer. Also, please consider sharing with your friends and family. Spread the word because any amount, big or small can only help! Thank you, much love <3.
