My friend's daughter was conceived right after he returned from Desert Storm. She has had developmental problems since birth-- physical as well as mental. She has recently been diagnosed with PDD (mild autism) and they say she has some form of a muscle disease "probably some form of muscular dystrophy." None of the doctors seem to know exactly what is wrong with her.
Has anyone else's children encountered these illnesses or symptoms? Please let me know. I love this child very much and it is heartbreaking to see her and her family go through this.
