No Colton's white blood cell count inst consistent with appendix
could it be appendix?
It was a normal day for the Burpo family. Colton, Colton's dad, Colton's mom Sonja and his older sister Cassie decided to take a break from their jobs (Colton's dad was a priest ) and go on vacation. Since Colton was sick couple days before and got better, his mom thoight it will be okay to go on vacation.
We should take him to the Hospital in Denver
The family had spent a beautiful day at the museum in Colorado. When they got back to the hotel something strange had been happening. Colton and Cassie started to throw up, so the parents thought maybe the flu that Colton had before they left for vacation started reoccurring. Instead of exploring they stayed at the hotel and took care of each other.
His appendix burst and liquid has been filling his body for days.
We are preparing to operate
The next morning Cassie was back to normal but Colton, on the other hand, was still throwing up. Colton's parents finally took Colton to the doctor so he checks on him. What the doctor did not know was that the whole family from the dad's side had appendix problems before. That was what Colton's dad had on the back of his head when he looked at all the symptoms Colton has.
Colton we can take you home soon!
I brought you your favorite toy!
When Colton and his parents got back to the hotel, they lay Colton down and thought he was going to get better. Days passed Colton was becoming weaker and weaker sinking into the couch. The sickness has token happiness out of Colton's life, that's where his parents realized something serious was happening that needed to be taken care
When the family got to the hospital the doctors took Colton immediately. As they got his x-rays done the worst nightmare happened. It turned out Colton's appendix burst and the fluid has been in the stomach for a long time. The doctors took Colton for operation immediately as well.
After a couple of hours waiting, Colton has been operated and laying on the bed. The doctors said he is going to be okay but they left his side open so the fluid from inside can leak out leaving just the clear blood inside. Colton's Parents were relieved but it was a frightful image to see their son laying on the bed. They stayed by his side and tried to make him happy and made sure he will start eating.
