A five-year-old Brantford boy, who suffers from Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, is recovering following surgery this week in Rhode Island.
It was a second operation in R.I. for Brodie Wilson, who had surgery more than seven months ago to help alleviate symptoms of EDS, a hereditary connective tissue disorder that can cause joint pain.
“We had a rough few days of testing, issues with sedation and pain control, and then the surgery but he’s on his way to recovery,” reported Brodie’s mother, Chantelle Willson.
Brodie’s younger sister, Peyton, and father, Paul Willson, also have been diagnosed with EDS.
