Talk about about turning my mood around! Even though the research is just in the very beginning stages and nothing has been published in a scientific journal yet, this is HUGE news for the short bowel world. Thank you Yuko for posting such amazing news to bring us to a whole new realm of medical possibility and hope!

    I am starting a Facebook support group. “Short Bowel Syndrome – A Support Community of those who understand!” In addtion to blogs, it would be nice to have such a centralized location to become interactive friends. Thus, I gave it a shot! There is not likely another human being less techno than myself but find Facebook a wonderful avenue to build relationships. Hope this finds you well. I am Matthew Nance’s dad who is a 14yr old having a rough time right now.
