ALBANY, GA (WALB) -
An Albany mother is raising concerns about the lack of specialized pediatric care in Southwest Georgia.
Yovanni Milling's two-year-old son, Noah, was born with a gut disease and suffers from a severe feeding disorder. He can't receive food through his stomach for the next 8-weeks due to complications. His parents say it's a struggle feeding him through a tube in his nose and by mouth. They can't find a nurse or therapist in South Georgia who can help so they don't have to travel to Atlanta.
"We don't have a nurse to assist us with taking the nasogastric tube out and placing it in properly and knowing that the placement is in the right place we don't have anyone,” said Yovanni Millings, Mother.
