From his parents: Lucas was born at 34 weeks with Gastroschisis. Roughly 2/3rds of his small intestine were outside his body. Shortly after birth the doctors said a large section of them would have to be removed, making his ability to ever eat solid food uncertain. Lucas beat every odd against him, a test ran weeks later showed healthy intestines, no further surgery. He initially required a prescription formula and a feeding tube, you’d never know that now.
