Perthes Disease in the News

My friend, Kim, just sent me these links. Good Morning America has aired a story about Perthes Disease. As this disease has personally affected our family, I really enjoyed watching them. It made me very thankful for modern medicine and research and NEW treatments!

If you want, here are the links:

Part One

Part Two

By the way, I didn't update after Brendan's last appointment in July. His bone is healing beautifully, according to Dr. B, and he is running around like a champ. It can take up to 3 more years for his new bone to get nice and hard so we are still limited to low-impact activities. Jumping sneaks in now and again, but Brendan is careful and slows down when he has over done it.
We will continue to follow up quarterly (for I don't know how long?) with our Orthopedic doc. in Delaware. Our next appointment is in November. Will keep you posted.
