Josh's GI Defect Journey:
Josh was born with an Underdeveloped Intestinal Tract. At only 36 hours old he had the first of five surgeries to correct his anatomy. He spent the first five months of his life in the NICU. He underwent a reconstructive surgery when he was 10 months old and at 13 months old the doctors closed the colostomy he had been given during his first surgery. A few years later he experienced some complications and had to undergo a second reconstructive surgery. Since then he has only been improving as he remains healthy and active!
