‘Such a traumatic experience’: Nampa toddler recovering after COVID nearly causes liver failure (Spokesman-Review)

Spokesman-Review: ‘Such a traumatic experience’: Nampa toddler recovering after COVID nearly causes liver failure. “In late August, Megan McCabe found herself at Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City, holding her 2-year-old daughter still while doctors sewed a dialysis line into her neck. A week earlier, the girl, Charlotte, had been playing with her brothers at their home in Nampa and was jumping off the kitchen counter into her father’s arms. Now, pediatric specialists were readjusting a line to help her liver stabilize. The girl had tested positive for COVID-19 just days before, and her condition deteriorated rapidly as her liver failed and abdomen swelled.”
