OK, I will. they first flared up when she had our second child, who was pretty large at birth, and it twisted her gut. She came within a few hours of dying. The docs told her it was down to a birth defect and that they would always plague her. She's had two operatins for them but of course, each operation, even keyhole, runs the risk of making more adhesions. She's been pretty good and this is the longest stretch she's had without a flareup.
