Green Bile Is Bad

That is what Matthew's surgeon told us many years ago, before Matthew's 1st surgery July of 2010. So, when Matthew threw up green bile today, it was time to go to the ER.

Since our arrival 2.5 hours ago, Matthew has had an X-ray, an ultrasound and an IV. I really expected this to be nothing, but alas, Matthew has a bowel obstruction caused by a likely twisted bowel. He will likely need surgery. They are consulting with the general surgeon that performed his intestinal malrotation surgery. Not sure next steps, but expect to hear more soon. Thank you for saying a little prayer or well wish for sweet baby Matthew.
