Update on Dalton

Here's to answer any questions that you may have about Dalton. 
This past weekend he had a bowel obstruction. They tried everything to get things to move. Unfortunately, they had to resort to their last option which was surgery. They went in yesterday and cleared out everything which was a success! They left him open afterwards so they could go back in on Thursday and make sure everything was clear and they will sew him up then. 
One of the major things the doctors were concerned with was being put on the ventilator. Since Dalton's lungs are already so compromised it was a thought that he may not come off the vent. Well, he came off the vent last night around 7:30! Everything went perfect and now he is preparing for his surgery to be put back together tomorrow. I hope this answered any questions you had as to what was going on. Hopefully we will get out of the hospital next week sometime. Please say an extra prayer for Dalton for tomorrow that his surgery goes smoothly.. -Katie
