So she went in when he was about 2 months old and the doctor said nothing is wrong. So about 8 months later it got to the size of a baseball and he couldnt even wear a diaper anymore so they took him to the hospital and then they cuted it out. The doctor at the hospital said if it got any bigger it would of busrt and he would of died:/ Im scared of that happening to my son.
