Bad news

How it should be:

The surgeon called this afternoon to say that DK does have Hirschsprungs disease. That means that will have to have part of his large intestine removed at some point. Normally this is discovered very early on with small babies and is a life threatening condition if not treated promptly. From that I assume that DK doesn't have a particularly bad case since he is now 15 months old and not doing too badly. Unfortunately, all this means is that they won't have to remove too much although I really don't know what I am talking about.

More news will follow when I have some and I am already getting a headache from drinking too much wine too fast...
