A very sad Lily-Rose Depp update

In Touch Magazine has reported that a 'rusty tack is responsible for the serious illness that could be threatening the life of Johnny Depp's 7 year old daughter, Lily-Rose'. Apparently Lily had scratched herself on the nail at the Depp family farmhouse in France and the wound was left untreated.

She has been in London's Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children since February 28 and despite a statement from Depp's publicist saying things are going well, sources say they are not. Johnny's rep said:

"We are happy to report that their daughter is doing much better. The family greatly appreciates the continued support and respect of their privacy."

However there are sources in the hospital that have said that one of Lily's kidneys is affected and so far she is not responding to treatment. They said:

"Blood poisoning developed. It has now spread through her body and has affected her vital organs."

Alright, from all my years of watching ER I'm assuming as long as you give your kids a tetanus shot every few years this shouldn't happen, right? And, please be assured that if all else fails, I'm sure Tom 'Jesus' Cruise can heal her, right?

Jesus Cruise's healing power aside, judging by the privacy the Depp family prides themselves on, I'm assuming the first quote was to simple distract media attention so that they can work through this difficult time on their own. I hope all works well.
