It wasn’t more then 3 weeks ago when my family and I learned that Jack and Hunter were diagnosed with a form of mucopolysaccharide syndrome called Morquio or MPS IV. MPS IV is a rare syndrome that hits only 1 in 200,000 live births. You would have never known there was something wrong with them till they turned about 1 year of age when we started to notice that they had a hunch in the back and their ribs flared out at the end. After changing orthopedic doctors we finally started to get answers. Not that they were the ones we wanted to hear. Our second opinion orthopedic referred us to a neurologist and made an appointment to have abdominal ultrasounds done. The ultrasounds were normal and our neurologist had us to a urine sample. The urine sample came back positive for MPS. We went with the neurologist on June 10th. We were admitted to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center on June 14th. What we were expecting was just a 3 or 4 days of testing turned in to 2 weeks of testing, exams, and surgeries.
