Cindy Scarlett came to GRRMF suffering from malnutrition, a urinary tract infection (UTI), and mite infestation. Lab work diagnosed her with EPI (exocrine pancreatic insufficiency) and she requires pancreatic enzymes mixed with wet food and a low fat diet. As of January 24th, this precious girl has been gaining the weight she should and is up to a healthy 50 lbs!
Cindy continues to gain confidence but still needs the back up and reassurance of her foster mom and sister. Her health has improved so that you can hardly tell she has this condition and in continuous need of the enzymes to survive. Her foster mom is working on sit, down, recognizing her name, eye contact and helping Cindy relax and trust. Each day she gets a little more comfortable with things she has reacted to in the past and is developing into a typical two-year old sometimes “forgetting” her behavior training. She loves her foster sister and is always by her side ready to play.
Her special food and necessary enzymes for digestion needed to support her well-being requires a lifetime budget of approximately $300 per month to continue her progress and maintain her health.
Each night she THANKS each of you – her belly is full, she is beginning to feel better and she is experiencing the loving interaction of a human – what a wonderful feeling that must be to a once scared and starving youngster! How priceless is that?
Is this priceless girl for you?
