A section of Brave's intestine slid inside of itself this week, much like the pieces of a telescope. The condition, called Intussusception, is completely treatable if caught in time, but becomes more critical if not treated quickly. Left untreated it would lead to death. Our big problem was that by the time we discovered what was going on, via ultrasound on Friday morning, he had been having unexplainable stomach pain around the clock for 5 days. Time was of the essence, and Brave and I caught the next flight to Bangkok.
My dad used to say, "Calm down, now. Don't get you're bowels in an uproar." I wish Brave would listen more closely to his Grandpa!
