Dancing the Bowell Blockage Boogie


It's probably just an ileus. That's what we're hoping anyway. Go ahead and google it if you want but don't say I didn't warn you about the photos you might see. (Thanks wikipedia)

Really rough night last night. Fever, elevated heart rate, seizures the whole kit and kaboodle but he's doing better now. Feeds have been stopped again as we rule out some of the more serious possible causes.

Post-op abcess or other blockage has been ruled out by x-rays, ultrasounds, and ct scans.

And so we wait.

Wait for him to pass the barium. Wait for his G.I. tract to wake up. Wait for the antibiotics to bring his white blood cell count back down.

We wait. We're pretty good at it. Plus Liam makes it pretty easy. He's lucky he is so damn cute.


  1. I’ll take your word for it regarding the google search! Sending positive thoughts your way. Hugs and kisses to you all.

  2. An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a
    co-worker who has been doing a little research on this.

    And he in fact ordered me dinner simply
    because I found it for him… lol. So allow me to reword this….
    Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending some time to talk about this matter
    here on your web site.
