Mother Arrested For Son's 323 Hospital Visits, 13 Surgeries, Report Says

Bowen-Wright was charged with injury to a child with serious bodily injury and she is being held in the Dallas County Jail.

As NBC Dallas Fort-Worth reports, a child protection service casework concluded that "the doctors do not find Christopher to be sick", following an investigation.

Christopher has had 13 major surgeries for the alleged ailments, prosecutors said, many of which took place at the Children's Medical Center of Dallas, the MailOnline reported.

However, last month when Bowen took Christopher to a doctor and claimed that he had had a seizure, various tests made it clear that he child was alright.

Her attorney, public defender Christi Bustos, hasn't returned a message seeking comment.

In his brief life, the boy - whom the BBC is not naming - has been placed on oxygen, given a wheelchair and a feeding tube, report local media.

At various times since his birth, Christopher Bowen has faced various invasive medical procedures from imagined illnesses.

'Every time that he would drink milk, he would throw it up, or so she (said),' he said.

But medical staff have ultimately concluded there is nothing wrong with the child.

He's convinced she suffers a condition called Munchhausen by Proxy, or MSBP.

MSBP is a "mental health problem in which a caregiver makes up or causes an illness or injury in a person under his or her care" which is often times a child, according to WebMD.

"Just so many surgeries that are just unbelievable", Crawford told NBC 5.

Unfortunately, the little boy's father, Ryan Crawford, was not given custody of his son. Both confirmed Christopher was not actually sick.

Crawford, an IT administrator, spent thousands on a lawyer, trying to get custody of Christopher following the couple splitting. "She was just able to fool all of the court system and fundraisers, and government assistance", said Crawford via the Star-Telegram. She also said she receives disability funds for Christopher, according to WFAA.

"She started explaining to the judge that the doctors stated my son would never walk", Crawford said. Crawford believes money was a motivation for his former girlfriend to put their son through the ordeal. In response, he was blocked from visiting his son and told he was in denial about his son's impending death.

A YouCaring fundraiser two years ago, which raised more than $8,000, said the young boy was battling a severe case of arteriovenous malformation.

Crawford is now fighting to get his child home with him.

'I was horrified because from what I knew, my son was fine.

"Out of everything that has happened, the worst thing you can do is put my children in foster care with strangers", he said.
