Still thinking of you guys and praying for Cooper’s speedy and complete recovery. This really hits close to home for me. When I was just his age I had surgery for telescoping intestines. Similar, but slightly different from what your little guy is going through I believe.
Keep the faith, kids are tough and heal quickly. Tell him he’s got a whole bunch of new buddies on AH that can’t wait for him to get out hunting again and post some pics up for us :)

May the Lord heal and comfort Cooper. Amen.

Thank you and it sounds very similar. intussusception is the medical term for what he has. But I think it might be the same thing.. I know it's considered to be very rare and it's where his intestine basically pulled itself into itself and the knotted up.

I surely do hope your boy recovers well from this. Tough to go thru this.

Thank you for the update on Cooper. He continues to remain in my prayers, as do several other request from posts on AH. Prayer is a most powerful gift, and I, like you, are continually humbled by the faith expressed by this hunting community. I stand in awe of all of you and our God.

Update on cooper...

We got to take him home today. The doc was surprised by how fast he recovered but said there is no sense in keeping him. We have to continue to monitor him and make sure he is taking it easy but we thank God and all of y'all for all the prayers and messages. We believe if it wasn't for God the surgeon that was on call (the only one in the area and I believe state that has done the operation) wouldn't have been on call so thank y'all for all of the prayers. It's true when they say prayers go up and powers come down! Thank you again.

That is fantastic news. In a few weeks, your past concerns will be a distant memory.

I am so happy to hear he is home and all went so well. Kids are tough and bounce back quick.

No mom and dad can get some rest as I am sure it was very hard on the two of you.

I've been waiting for this good news.
He is a tough little guy.

He'll be out hunting in no time. :A Banana:

That set of Moose antlers must have found a new home in his room by now.

Hi, I’m going on a Leopard & Lion hunt, I’m taking my 338 Blaser mag loaded with 225gr Nosler Accubond moving at 2850ft/s. Will the Nosler Accubond be an excellent bullet on this leopard & lion? Thanks
