My grandson Moses, has been in and out of Seattle Children's Hospital, on and off for more than 7 out of the 10 months since he was born. He was diagnosed with Hirschsprungs disease (digestive disease that affects the intestines) when he was 6 days old, and had surgery to remove all of his small and half of his large intestine, because the disease extended that far into his bowel. He has had a feeding tube in his nose and a 'baby' colostomy bag ever since. He just had his last surgery, and no longer has the tube in his nose, or the colostomy bag on his abdomen.

Although neither one ever seemed to bother him, he is now very happy to be eating solid foods. He will always have diet restrictions, but happily spaghetti isn't one of them!

Although he couldn't have any, I made dozens of cookies for the nurses and staff who have taken care of him for so many months, we are truly blessed and will be grateful for them forever.

It is so wonderful to see updated photos of Moses without his feeding tube and to know his last surgery went so well! He sure looks happy with his new luxury of eating and enjoying being able to be a normal toddler who can finally make messes with his food. ;-) (03/07/2011)

Awww. How adorable he is! I know what you went through. We had a similar problem with my now 3 yr. old grandson. He is now well and very active. Please give little Moses a huge hug. We are so happy for your family and especially Moses. The Howell Family (03/08/2011)
