Catrina and Dylan have endured more than they have needed to in dealing with Dylan's hirschsprungs disease. Catrina, you're brave and strong and an inspiration on how you are so thorough in caring for your  precious boy. You have a beautiful mother's heart and this is why Dylan chose you to be his guide and soft place to fall in his life. Well done on documenting the road you are travelling with your son, raising awareness of this unpredictable disease and showing the world what a lions hearts you and Dylan have. All our love xx
