March 25, 2010

We buried Stephen this morning which was absolutely heartbreaking. But we barely had time to grieve because Benjamin wasn’t doing well so we had to get back to the hospital. Benjamin’s stomach had become distended and had turned blue. After looking at the x-rays and not seeing any air expelling from his bowel, but having the condition worsen, his doctors collectively decided it was time to transport him to Children’s Hospital. He arrived in Boston around 6:40 and they continued to monitor him and perform x-rays. We met Dr. Buchmiller and she told us they had to go in and do exploratory surgery or else Benjamin wouldn’t make it. Of course in the midst of all this, he went into kidney failure again.
