May 6th--3rd Annual Wishbone Day!

Sunday, May 06, 2012

Today my family will be going yellow to help raise awareness of OI (Osteogenesis Imperfecta) which my dh has. My dh is 54 years old and has broken over 300 bones in his lifetime, his first ones being when he was born. For some families like my dh's it is genetic (his father had OI as do two of his sisters) He also has uncles and cousins with OI. For other families it is a spontaneous mutation in the genes. We were lucky that we were able to have two healthy children who do not have OI.
