    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    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?
