Hirschsprung’s Disease

Because this blog is a recipe blog as well as  an informative blog, I will often use links to pass on information.  Because of content, some information has no place in the context of my recipes.  This is such a link. It will explain the disease so you can get a better picture of what struggles I have balancing Matthew’s diet.  Matthew’s condition was surgically corrected at 8 months old.  The surgeon was quick to tell me that he is unable to tell the quality and the quantity of the remaining nerve cells in Matt’s colon so future problems could arise. And arise they did. When I post about the green smoothie I now use in his feeding pump, I will reference this link in “Did You Know?”:
