Gastroparesis, otherwise called "paralyzed stomach," affects about 25 percent of people with type 1 diabetes and 10 percent of people with type 2 diabetes. People diagnosed with a neurologic disease, such as Parkinson's, and those who have had stomach ulcer surgery may also be affected. However, the largest group of individuals with paralyzed stomach suffers solely from this condition, without additional illness; they have what is called "idiopathic" gastroparesis. Dr. Linda Lee, board certified in internal medicine and gastroenterology and the director of the Johns Hopkins Integrative Medicine and Digestive Center, explains the disease and provides insights on symptoms, causes, diagnosis, treatments and prevention.

Now Freischlag, the accidental surgeon, is the new director of the surgery department at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and surgeon in chief of Hopkins Hospital.

When the debilitating cell disease that had plagued their daughter since birth began last year to stop her heart for several minutes at a time, Dawn and Stephen Murphy turned to home hospice care. Hospice helped with both the practical and emotional aspects of caring for a 6-year-old child with a terminal illness. Hospice nurses made sure Kayla was comfortable in her Havre de Grace home. Counselors helped the parents cope with the possibility of death. "We don't want her to be in a sterile hospital environment," said Kayla's mom, Dawn.
