Help support Avery's family

Here we are again my friends and family. Avery Jayne is back in the hospital. She is in rough shape right now. She had emergency surgery done last night to see what had ruptured in her chest. Turns out her intestines got wrapped around her stomach and up behind her heart, therefore causing a large part of her intestines to die and rupture. This caused stool to fill her abdomen and surround her heart and lungs etc. They cleaned out what they could and also removed half of her colon and the damaged intestines. At that point her blood pressure was dropping and she was very weak. They had to take a break and let her rest. They left her chest open incase of swelling etc. So for now her abdomen is still open and were hoping to be able to continue the damage control tommorrow (Sunday). The plan is to try to finish cleaning her out and repair more damage Sunday morning back in the OR. She needs to gain strength in order for that to be successful. She is in rough shape and having blood pressure dropping issues right now. Its touch and go right now. She is due to get worse before any progress can be made. We made this gofundme the last time we were here 2 1/2 years ago, They told us it would be great for us to keep her out of the hospital for 6 months and we managed 2.5 years!! You guys were so amazing and helpful on our last journey here. It is very expensive for us to be here with her. Just this morning we ran next door to Winnie Palmer to eat breakfast and it was $17.69 just for crappy hospital biscuits, eggs and sausage/bacon. OUCH! And now we ran to Target to grab groceries and coffee and came back to chaos and almost missed her having issues. Dr and nurses got her back settled and started some new meds to help with the blood pressure and issues. Walking back in that hallway and seeing a whole crowd of doctors, nurses and respiratory crews in your baby's room knowing she had a hard time while we left for just an hour isnt a good feeling. Also just like everyone else in FL the fact that the hurricane just about wiped us out with paying to run Averys machines for 2.5 days on the generator. We managed that but didnt expect these expenses obviously. Thank you all. Calvin and I greatly appreciate the love and prayers!! We will keep everyone updated as we can.
