Thank you for clicking on Baby Carters picture. His Mother is Lexi Warren and his father is Casey Braendle. To start, his mother, Lexi Warren, is one of best friends. She is part of the Wheelersburg, OH community. I have created this page to help off set some of the medical bills and expensive his mother Lexi and his Father Casey will have. Carter’s story is below and is what I know so far. I will update as Lexi updates us.
On Sunday 1-27-18 Carter was admitted to KDMC in Ashland, Ky for Pneumonia. He had also recently been sick prior with the Flu and never seemed to recover 100%. He spent 1 night at KDMC and then was transferred to Cabell in Huntington, WV on Monday because he was getting worse. He was showing fluid around his lung so a chest tube was placed. On Tuesday morning he had gotten worse. The chest tube was not working and they stated he had a very large abcess in his lung. Carter was then flown to Children’s in Columbus, OH. Keep in mind he has now been admitted to 3 different hospitals, transferred by squad, and flown. As most of us know hospital bills add up extremely fast. Once in Columbus the Doctors discussed surgery because the abcess was taking up the majority of his lung. They decided to hold off on surgery because it was too risky to sedate him. They decided to continue antibiotics and hope he would improve. During this Carter was in extreme pain and pain medication was not hardly helping. He started to fill up with mucous and they kept having to suction him out. Now it is Wednesday and there has not been much improvement. They just took Carter back for surgery that will take around 2 hours. They stated they are going to have to place another chest tube on top of the one he has, a feeding tube , and a PICC line. Carter is in surgery right now and I will update as soon as I can.
If you can can we please ask to donate to help this family with medical expensives for Baby Carter. Any amount helps.
Thank you so much a please share Carter’s story!
Let’s also keep Baby Carter in our prayers!
