Prayers please - possible TRIGGS
kristinrayerootes posted:
As you might remember, my brother and his wife had twins 7 weeks ago. We just found out that one of them likely has biliary artesia, which is a liver disease. It is basically a blockage in his liver that prevents the bile from being processed correctly, or something like that. He will have a biopsy later today to confirm it. There are a couple of treatments, the first being a procedure where they will connect his small intestine to the liver to drain the bile. The second is a liver transplant. Regardless of which treament option is chosen, it is very scary. Chances are very good that he will go on to lead a normal life after recovery, but I couldn't imagine my child going through that. I am scared to death for him the way it is. If you have any extra prayers available, could you use one for him?
