The Natalie & Alice Fish Story

We are the Fishes. In 2011 two of our five children; Natalie and Alice were diagnosed with a rare gene disfunction called Leaky SCID (Severe Combined Immune Deficiency). Their condition is so rare that only two cases are reported in the U.S. each year. Both girls have endured much, and have spent most of their young lives in and out of hospitals due to common illnesess a healthy immune system would overcome. The required treatment for our girls is a bone marrow transplant.
Although the new marrow could mean a normal life for them, it will be a long and arduous road. This blog is to share our experience as parents and the courage of our children.

Leg Doctor

Alice visited the orthopedic doctor today.  The x-ray indicated that it is healing nicely.  She is able to have her boot off for an hour or so in the evening...and does not need to sleep with it.  She is going to be very happy.  It will be a challenge to get her to wear the boot after enjoying the freedom of having it off. 

Two and a half weeks left in the boot and she is done.  This will make almost ten weeks total for her leg's recovery.

While talking with the doctor Alice explained to the doctor that her leg 'just broke right in half'.  She likes to be involved in the conversations with the doctors.

Thankfully this visit was snappy.  Our fastest orthopedic visit yet.


All ready to go see the leg doctor.
