The Raw Vegan: Part CV, Traveling

DS2 explained what the doctors had found. His voice was shaking to the point that I couldn’t understand what he was saying. It might have been more merciful if I hadn’t. “A what?” I asked. “An omphalocele,” he said. “The baby’s liver and intestines are in a sac on the outside of its body. The […]
