Doctors suspected that his symptoms may have been caused intentionally. “I am very concerned that mother has moved from exaggerating symptoms to inducing symptoms,” Dr. Suzanne Dakil wrote in the CPS petition. After the case was investigated, it was found that the medical abuse began when Christopher was only 11 days old in 2009.
During time, Christopher was placed full time on oxygen , used a wheelchair and had a feeding tube outfitted directly into his intestine, which resulted in three life-threatening blood infections. His mother even tried to get him on the lung transplant list. A YouCaring fundraiser was set two years ago, raising more than $8,000. It said the young boy was battling a severe case of arteriovenous malformation. Since being removed from his mother’s care, Christopher eats regularly, has had no seizures, feeding tubes, oxygen or an IV, officials said. “It’s horrible for my son, or any kid because obviously, my son is not the only one that has had to go through this type of torture,” Christopher’s father told to media. Kaylene Bowen-Wright was charged with injury to a child with serious bodily harm.
