more about intussusception

since a few friends visiting this website have babies under 1, i'm including these links on intussusception in case anyone wants to know more about it. signs to look for are vomitting and redcurrant jelly-like stool (stool with blood and mucus).


once again, we're really lucky that our paediatrician found out about it quite early and a surgery can be arranged quick enough, because if left untreated, there can be serious complications including irreversible tissue damage and death, and the doctor might need to cut off some parts of rafael's bowels.
