What is Bilirary Atresia?

Doctors diagnosed Michelle's son, Joshua, with biliary atresia, which is a disorder in the liver drainage system. Dr. Sears explains that the bile duct that flushes waste products from the liver to the intestines doesn't form, and there's no place for the byproducts to go, creating a backup and enlarging the liver. Eventually, the liver fails, leading to death.
