This is Kelly at the Weird Al concert back on Aug. 15. He hadn’t been feeling well since our trip to Ireland, England and Scotland at the beginning of the month. Now we know why.
A five-day stint at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP, around here) has uncovered that Kelly has an illness called inflammatory bowel syndrome, an autoimmune disorder that targets the GI track. It can be managed with medicines and generally good living. There is no cure. He is currently being treated at CHOP.
To everyone who has prayed, called or generally aimed some good energy at Kelly – and all of us – thank you!
He is feeling better and on the mend. We’re hoping he comes home this weekend. Wanna wish Kelly well? Click on the Comments section under this posting.
