After two years, CT girl may finally get a bite to eat

? It all began with a stomachache. Amy Oestreicher's stomach literally exploded two years ago, the result of a small blood clot that was building up pressure in her abdomen.

Since then, Amy has undergone 13 surgeries to repair her stomach. Now, the reality for Amy being able to eat and digest food is soon approaching.

"My first like real meal, I'd really love Chinese food," says Oestreicher. That first meal is just a few days away.
