Avalon’s Story

June 24th, 2011 by danielle rowland

Our daughter, Avalon Rowland, was diagnosed with nec a couple of weeks ago. i began reading up online about the condition and although i always try to bear in mind reading things online that more of the negative stories get told than the positiive ones, it was still a very scary time. therefore, i just wanted to let everyone know that in Avalon’s case, she is much better now. cant believe in a couple of days she went from being fine to being on morphene, stopping feeds and having ventilator and this week, she’s back to breathing on her own, no pain, no morphene, feeding and gaining weight again. her infection levels were up a little yesterday but it seems to happen when they put a long line in her but they’ve taken it out again now. overall though, doing really well. i hope one day they find out what causes nec and develop the knowledge and treatments for it, but for those that it would come to late for, my deepest sympathy
