Watch Howie’s Story
Sarah wondered if she would ever be able to hold her son.
At the ultrasound, Sarah and her husband learned they were having a boy. Moments later they learned their baby’s intestines had formed outside the body. Medically, it was called gastroschisis. Emotionally, it was devastating. But weeks later, just after he was born, a surgical team at Renown Health performed a procedure to repair the defect.
