Karlien took to Instagram to share the news that her daughter has been admitted in the PICU.
This was after her Doctor was unable to perform surgery on the young girl.
This is what Karlien had to say;
“The long-awaited operation that my husband and I were looking forward to for Elah has taken place. All we want is for her to finally be healthy after this massive procedure. It gave us hope and helped us get through everything,” she wrote.
“He says ‘she’s fine, but I couldn’t do anything for her.’ I must have misheard him? Huh? What do you mean Dr.? Please repeat? ‘I couldn’t do the shunt’,” A shunt is used to open clogged veins, allowing fluid to move along from one part of the body to another.
“Our baby has been cut open, from one side to the other side of her little tummy, just to see that the Dr. can’t do anything for her. Her veins are totally different from what the radiologist told the Dr. and so he had to just stitch her up again. Such a big incision, with no change,” Karlien went on to say.
“Elah is recovering in PICU. They are suppressing the pain with strong medication, and over time will lessen her dosage as she gets better. My heart is in pieces and is being pulled in every direction.”
