Photo: He's a Papa!

A week after my only grandchild's birth, he was found to have a very serious digestive disease. He had to have surgery to remove all of his small intestine, and more than half of his large intestine. The joy of his birth and the sorrow of his illness were such extremes, yet I have never been so proud of my son.

Even with his heart hurting, he stayed strong and unwavering in his commitment to protect and nurture his son. He's a Papa! My grandson is now 7 months old and thriving and happy! Future surgeries will correct his problem, we are so blessed to have him.

My grandson was a happy mess after he was able to try solid food for the first time. We weren't sure when he was done if there was more food on the inside or the outside!

What a darling little boy. He's beautiful.

I know so well how you must feel. We went through a similar experience, and our son did us proud too.There's nothing quite like the pride you feel when you see your child all grown up, and following all the rules of being a good human being, no matter what they might be going through on the inside.

Thank you for sharing your family with us, and we wish all the best for that little one and your family.

I would like to strongly suggest you consult with an N.A.E.T. practitioner and receive treatments for your son. Non-invasive, painless, he will absorb his food. I am treating a friend who was dying of Crohn's a year ago, her Crohn's is gone and she is able to eat fruit and a lot of things she could not. She did not need the surgery to have her small intestine removed either. Go to www.naet.com and to find a practitioner. Energy medicine!

You have two blessings there.

This first picture of your son holding him reminds me of how God holds us when we can't bear the pain and are at our wits end.

Blessings,

Wow, thanks for sharing your grandson with us all! My oldest son's firstborn's digestive problems weren't quite severe enough for surgery. My own grandson is now 10 and although he does have an allergy to eggs, he's almost as tall as I am!
