Baby Oliver was born April 17 weighing 8 pounds, 6 ounces. James Wheeler says it wasn’t an easy pregnancy for his wife Lisa. “Leading up to his birth, we were already having some issues with mom Lisa here, she was pretty much going into kidney and liver failure,” he said. Doctors were also monitoring something that didn’t seem right with Oliver. They saw fluid in his stomach area. They drained the fluid from Oliver when he was born, and his weight dropped from 8 pounds, 6 ounces to 7 pounds, 9 ounces. And after multiple blood tests and X-rays, Oliver was rushed into surgery. “At 2 o’clock in the morning we got a phone call that he needed emergency surgery, he had a hole in his bowel,” James Wheeler said.
