LeRoy Celebrates Birthday
Seaman's Ship Getting
Shipyard Overhaul —

LeRoy Moos . . . plucky fellow.—The Frontier Photo.
LeRoy Moos now can have his
cake and eat it, too.
The little boy from O’Neill
Saturday ate his first birthday
cake—an orange frosting dazzler
with five blue candles number
ing his years.
He has had other birthday
cakes in his long stay at Omana
University hospital—but only for
feasting with the eyes. His
esophagus—normally an elastic
tube that connects the pharynx
and the stomach—was a cord of
A rare operation—one of sev
en major surgical procedures —
and numerous minor ones have
by-passed that block.
It all beqan January 20,
1950, when LeRoy drank a lye
solution in the home of his
parents, Mr. and Mrs. Edwin
Moos of O'Neill.
By the time LeRoy was
brought to the hospital, scar tis
sue had clogged his esophagus
so that he could not even swal
Later a gastrostomy—an open
ing made in the stomach for art
ificial feeding—was performed.
For more than a year LeRoy was
fed a high - protein mixture
through a stomach tube.
The rare operation involved
isolating a section of his small
intestine and bringing into the
chest cavity as a replacement for
the useless esophagus.
The extremely difficult part,
a doctor explained, was stretch
ing without breaking the meser>
terv — a filmy connective tissue
containing the blood carriers.
The boy now can eat anything.
But it is still necessary to dilate
the new esophagus.
LeRov has been placed in a
boarding home so he can attend
school and return twiee weekly
to the hospital for dilations.
Each dilation requires running
a series of rubber tubes down
the esophagus. The largest is
about a half an inch in diameter
Weighted with more than a
pound of mercury, it is equiva
lent to an adult swallowing a
qarden hose, a doctor said.
The dilations in time will be
far apart. Doctors doubt if Le
Roy will ever be free completely
But the boy wasn’t worrying
about that at a birthday party

He was too busy showing off
his birthday cake and presents

Plucky Little LeRoy spent a
few days here with his parents
a few weeks ago. He stopped to
visit The Frontier and LeRoy
