Our only prenatal wish was that our second child would be as healthy as our first born daughter Julia. Thus, we were elated when all indications were that he was healthy. Dylan was born on June 21st of 2011 weighing 7lbs 14 oz. He was beautiful and appeared healthy.
However, soon things began to change as he was not breastfeeding well and started vomiting on his first day of life. At that time, I was told he had abdominal distention. He was no longer allowed to eat, had an abdominal x-ray which showed distended bowel loops, and was transferred to another hospital for a higher level of NICU care.
