Danny Jr., Dan’s son, was so dubbed by his uncle, and on Thursday he proved why, fighting his way through a kidney transplant operation made necessary by a condition called polycystic kidney disease (PKD).

“In March of 2010, he lost all kidney function. Today, September 6, 2012, Danny is now peeing again! Words can’t describe the emotion that we are feeling right now,” wrote his ecstatic mother, Kristen Miller, on Facebook on Thursday.

“He’s still in the OR (operating room) but will be headed to his PICU (pediatric intensive care unit) room shortly. His new kidney function will be monitored extremely closely...

Fantastic news! I could only imagine what it must be like for the family to go through such a rough patch like this. Good to see things are looking up for the Miller family.

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the playground is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

Fantastic news. I'm so happy for Dan, his son and their family. No kid deserves to go through such a tough time, and Dan as a parent has been through a lot. I'm very, very happy things are looking up for the Miller family.

I'm also ecstatic to hear this good news for the entire family. I hear the road to recovery is still a tough one but after what he's already been through, I know the little guy can pull through.

Also, I hope his Aunt is doing well. What an amazing gift she gave to her nephew that will ultimately save his life.
