The removal of most of Nora’s small intestine has resulted in her being diagnosed with Short Bowel Syndrome. Since she cannot absorb nutrients through her intestines Nora is put on TPN (Total Parental Nutrition) by IV to keep her going. This drug will keep her alive but is very hard on the liver and other organs.

Nora Kaylee Thomas was born at 2:43 p.m. by emergency C-section weighing 7 pounds 5 ounces. Her small intestine had kinked in three places cutting off the blood supply while she was still in the womb. The lack of blood supply caused the intestinal tissue to die and 95% of her small intestine was removed. The doctors did not have much hope for her survival. Her small intestine was so damaged that the surgeon contemplated not doing the surgery at all because he did not expect her to make it. Thankfully he knew that we would want any time possible with our little girl and did the surgery. The day Nora was born was the best and worst day of our lives. But with each passing hour of our little girl showing her strength our hope grew.
