Trust account set up for Dublin infant

A trust account has been established for a Dublin infant who nearly lost his battle with a serious and rare illness.
Those wishing to make a donation may take it to First Virginia Bank at 205 Broad Street in Dublin, or mail it to First Bank of Virginia, P.O. Box 488, Dublin, VA 24084.
Please specify that the donation is for the Malakhi Tyree Burton Trust Account.
Eight-month-old Malakhi recently underwent surgery at Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital to correct a condition called intussusception, a situation where a section of the bowel slides into another section, like one piece of a telescope slides into the next, according to KidsHealth.com.
This condition causes a bowel obstruction, which leads to swelling and decreases blood flow to the section of the intestines involved.
Malakhi’s father, Milton Boysaw, of Dublin, said doctors at Roanoke indicated they had seen the situation only three other times.
The condition affects only about one to four out of 1,000 infants and is three to four times more common in boys than in girls.

Its cause is unknown, but it is believed to be linked to a virus.
In most cases, children who undergo surgery for the condition recover quickly and return home in a few days.
However, Malakhi had to be revived following the procedure when his heart stopped from having been in shock for about seven to eight hours prior to surgery.
Boysaw took the infant to the emergency room at Pulaski Community Hospital after Malakhi started “cramping over” and regurgitating every time he was fed.
Doctors determined the infant was suffering from gas and constipation and gave Boysaw some drops to give Malakhi at home.
But the next morning, Boysaw found Malakhi’s condition had deteriorated over night.
He returned to the emergency room, where an employee recognized the infant’s problem, due to its prominence in children in her native country.
Malakhi had gone into shock during the night.
