Episode Summary

The Boy Who Could Break
Bob Williams develops night sweats, a fever, headache, fatigue, light sensitivity, a drooping eye, blindess in his left eye, paralysis of his left side, and hallucinations. His doctors believed he has meningitis, but it turns out that actually, he also has a rare disease called Acute Disseminated Encephalomytelitis (ADEM). Ever since he had been born, Ryan Poteet has had polycystic kidneyes, unusual positioning of his hands, eyes unusually far apart, unusual curvatures of his legs, speech impediments from an unusually shaped mouth, and short stature from a rare skeletal disorder called Hajdu-Cheney Syndrome.moreless
