I don't know if Jack's problem is in fact his spleen, though it sure
does sound like it, but I can tell you that they do just fine without
it if it needs to be removed. Sidney had his removed at 6 years of
age and lived a normal life until he died 1.5 years later of
unrelated causes. We were concerned because of Sidney's age, but he
did just fine with the surgery.
