You can really see the jaundice well in this picture.  Because of the damage to his liver, Owen's intestines were reattached only 6 weeks after they perforated.  Most kids wait months between surgeries but Owen was at risk of going into liver failure if he didn't start getting proper nutrition.  The surgery to reattach was on July 11 and he didn't start eating food until around this time.
