Pray for Baby Charlotte and her family

Baby Charlotte is the baby doctors want to give up on, whose parents say she's getting stronger and just needs more support. Charlotte Wyatt

A recent update from her family:
Charlotte is continuing to get stronger, but today there was another set-back from the hospital. Though she spends most of the time in her oxygen box, she had been slowly introduced to nasel cannula for the past few weeks; going up to two hours a day, split up into two sessions.

Darren and Debbie loved this new advancement-- she was more alert when she was on them, and certainly easier to hold and stimulate. But today they found out the nasal prong machine had been removed, and on inquiring, that the hospital had decided to stop giving her time on it. No reason was given, simply "it hadn't been a success".
But why not a success? She did so well on them!

So she's not vent-dependent, as mainstream news has been reporting. You'll learn a lot on this site that will leave you wondering what kind of "research" the reporters are doing on this story. Do they just parrot what the doctors say? Why haven't we heard that Charlotte was eating from a spoon and had been transferred to the regular children's ward before suffering a setback? A setback from which she seems to be recovering from?
