Episode Summary

The Baby Who Wouldn't Stop Crying

Ever since young Averi Williams has been born, her parents have become worried about her. Averi cries constantly for no apparent reason, has unusually bluish sclera, has an enlarged forehead with protruding veins, fails to gain weight, and has breathing problems. These symptoms turn out to be caused by malignant infantile osteopetrosis.

Since she was fifteen years old, Lynn Sanders has been experiencing chronic pain in her hands and wrists. The pain spreads to her joints, and it turns out that Lynn has Ehlers-Danlos syndrome.
