Ehrlichs' baby son back from hospital

May 05, 2004|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

The 8-week-old son of Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr. and first lady Kendel Ehrlich returned home yesterday morning after undergoing surgery for an obstruction between the stomach and small intestine at the University of Maryland Medical Center, the governor's office said.

Joshua Ehrlich underwent a second procedure Monday night to ensure the success of the first procedure to correct a condition known as hypertrophic pyloric stenosis, the office said. The initial operation was Sunday.

Joshua is expected to make a full recovery. "We are thrilled to have Josh home where he belongs," Ehrlich said in a statement.
