Thanks for writing to health care magic.

I appreciate the effort and care you are taking of for your sick child.

I request you to be positive (even though it is very difficult to be positive in such a scenario) and keep your spirits up and I can suggest that your kid could also benefit from your positive mood.

What is the diagnosis that your doctors gave to your kid that has led him to be on a feeding tube?

Please reply.
Take care.
