(reportingly a neighbor called the local police to report a child screaming excessively). My son was taken to our pediatrician for examination Thursday (June 19th, 2008) morning at that point the pediatrician recommended my son be taken to a local hospital for an X-Ray & Ultrasound for what appeared to be "Intussusceptions"; Local Hospital confirmed via. x-ray/ultrasound scans "Intussusceptions" but the facilities were unequipped for this type of pediatric condition and recommended my son be taken to "Hospital" immediately where it was confirmed via. scan the Intussusceptions was positive.
