Nathaniel Gebbie is all boy: He loves lawnmowers and tractors, and anything that has a wheel on it, and riding on an ATV and anything outdoors. He also loves reading the newspaper with his grandfather.

The 2.5-year-old sees a lot of his grandparents, who help his parents care for him during the week.

"There's really no day care that takes kids with G-tubes," said his mother, Samantha Ruderman.

Ruderman and Gebbie's father, Jeremy, were excited for their first child, and everything went well, despite fact he was breech and born by cesarean section. But on the third day of his life, their world changed.

"That’s when we realized something was going on, but we didn't know what," Ruderman said.
