Jack Osbourne has been diagnosed with MS. The son of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne just recently got married and has one child, a daughter. He is surprisingly eloquent in the face of what must be devastating news. He is in the normal age group to start showing symptoms. That is sad news, no matter who hears it.
However, there have been advances with some medicines, and as young as he is, perhaps he will be able to stay on top of the effects for a long time. The disease can go into remission for spells, and can vary widely from one patient to another.
Max Page, the pint-sized Darth Vader, is doing well after his surgery. According to reports from his mother, he is up walking around a little, and is setting small goals and steps to pass the time. He's in good spirits, and seems to be out of the immediate danger. His valve is expected to last up to fifteen years, which will seem like forever to the seven-year-old.
