Married to OI

My husband and son have OI...

My name is Beverly Patterson. I live in Saltillo, MS. I have a story to share about Osteogenesis Imperfecta. But my story is a little different. It is different in the matter that I do not have Osteogenesis Imperfecta. I married a wonderful guy seven years ago that has the disease. We have had a wonderful marriage. Then five years ago I gave firth to a handsome baby boy. He also has Osteogenesis Imperfecta. He is in Head Start this year and next year he will be going to regular school. He will be in Kindergarten. He has had a total of (17) seventeen breaks he has been in five body casts. Although he has had that many fractures and he has only broke hislegs so far. Nothing has slowed this little fellow down. He hasn't even let the body cast slow him down. Both my husband and my son is so determined to do stuff on their own it is not even funny.
