uggh part 2

Around 6pm last night, Alvin started screaming bloody murder. I went into his room where he was taking a nap, and found him with his legs drawn up to his belly, his face beet red, and he just shrieking. I checked his diaper, and it was full of blood. So, I rushed him to the ER in New London. They took an X-ray and an Ultrasound, but found nothing definate. They transfered us to Yale Children's Hosptial, where they did another Ultrasound. They think that a tiny part of his small intestine might have slipped into his large intestine, but due to all the impacted fecal material, they cant be sure. So, Alvin was given an enema to remove the fecal material. He is home right now on a provisional basis. Once his bowels are clear, we have to go in for another ultrasound.
