Ben stomach is now causing major problems, he cannot accept food or nutrients as he is very bloated. The doctors are not sure why his intestines are not processing. X-rays are not lending any more information.
So they need to open up the stomach to have a look and operate if necessary. The doctors think it may be a stricture (a narrowing of the intestines). This is a relatively simple operation and carries a low risk, if the doctors find a stricture, it can be fixed easily and quickly. .
Should have news on the operation later today, there is also a possibility the operation could happen tomorrow.
Time is of the essence here, hang in there little one.
