EMERGENCY OBSTRUCTION SURGERY-CRITICAL CONDITION RC was admitted to UPENN in the late evening and had emergency obstruction surgery performed to save him. He is now in critical condition in their ICU. His blood pressure is very low and the anesthesia was hard on his frail body. A foreign object was removed from the intestines which caused complete dilation and blockage. It was removed through a small incision but upon removal, his body immediately evacuated his bowels. RC started to wake up from surgery around 8am and is being monitored around the clock. Please pray for sweet RC. His doctors are worried for him.
This is RC- he was admitted into the ER and a surgeon was called in for emergency GI obstruction surgery. FDNY found this poor emaciated boy. While waiting for basic bloodwork, RC fell very ill and was unable to walk. X-Rays were taken and an unknown obstruction is present. There was fluid in his abdomen and there was a chance of perforation and sepsis. This young boy was wandering the streets, alone and now he is facing a life threatening condition.
Please help us help RC. The estimate is $8-10k and we were not prepared for this unexpected emergency. But we could not turn our backs on RC when he needed someone the most or the kind first responder that reached out for help.
