Baby Enzo is fighting for his life...

One of our families is suffering and struggling and it breaks our heart.  I spoke to Mom the other day and she is allowing me to post because - they need all the prayers, thoughts and good vibes that they can possibly get. So to whomever you pray or in your reflection... please keep Enzo and his parents in your thoughts.   

The family came to us when Carrie was pregnant and she wanted to make sure that their fur baby Jax was getting daily exercise and that we could tend to the litter box daily as well. They have been with us from that point forward...  

All was well with this beautiful family until August 6th.  

From Enzo's Caring Bridge page...

"As many of you know, our sweet little Enzo showed signs of being seriously ill on August 6th and was admitted to the Pediatric ICU at Children's Hospital on Friday Aug. 9th.  His working diagnosis is Guillain Barre* Syndrome.  

As anyone who has met him knows, Enzo is an amazing little man.  He is incredibly strong and brave, and we know that he will beat this and WILL make a full recovery.  We are in wonderful hands here at Children's Hospital which makes an impossibly difficult situation easier to bear.  We have been in touch with many of you individually, and we deeply appreciate everyone's love, support and prayers.  Please keep all of that coming.

Love, Kenny, Carrie & Enzo"

(*Guillain-Barre syndrome is a serious disorder that occurs when the body's defense (immune) system mistakenly attacks part of the nervous system. This leads to nerve inflammation that causes muscle weakness and other symptoms.)

Enzo is still at Children's and making progress but has a long road ahead.  We give his babies a kiss for him every day.  I just can't imagine what Enzo's parents are going through.  I can't imagine having a healthy, happy baby one day and the next being in the NICU.  

If you would like to follow Enzo's progress and offer support, I know Mom, Dad and Enzo would all appreciate it.  I am sure words of encouragement are helping them through this difficult time.  

We love y'all Madona family. Whatever you need... we are here.
