Seth was born prematurely on October 10,1990 with an abdominal wall defect called gastroschisis. with midgut volvulus. Seth lost the majority of his small bowel and some of his large bowel, due to gangrene. Seth was placed on TPN the day of his birth. This is the first picture I was able to see of Seth.
This is Seth today, a young, handsome man. He is a miracle. To read more about Seth's story, please click the Seth's Story tab.
