new born baby with high serum crp level than normal

Dear all,

My baby was born at 30 weeks and 2 days which is fewer than 37 weeks' gestational age.
He has undergone an operation to remove 8 cm of small intestine due to thicker intestinal fluid , causing blockage.
How his swelling belly goes away but the doctor said his inflamation index (serum crp level ) is still high m195 sth.
Besides, the blood platlet levels drop slow each time and after giving blood platlets to the baby .Other checks shows normal results , x-ray scan and CT scan didn't any abnormalities with baby's stomach.  The baby is given 6ml x 8 meals per day of breast-milk and there are normal expulsion of feces at the temporary stoma opening .

What could be the causes of  this?

Best Regards
Fai

Congratulations on your baby but you sure have had it hard as has your baby.  Was the early birth a surprise?  What is the doctor saying with regards to these findings?  Is this unexpected after the surgery?
