Lucas was a normal vibrant kid. There were no abnormal health issues at all, until he was 3. First incident was when he was 3 yrs old. He had a really bad 24 hr stomach flu and by the time he stopped vomiting, he would scream in pain if we moved him. It lasted for about a night and he slowly progressed to get better. We thought it was strange but he was an emotional dramatic kid so we just figured he felt terrible.
