Sister Wives News: Janelle’s Daughter Maddie Brush Reveals Baby Evie’s Amputated Leg
Sister Wives’ last season ended with cast Kody and Janelle’s daughter Maddie Brown Brush concerned over her newborn’s condition. On Monday, the Sister Wives cast member posted on Instagram, holding Evie and we can see bandages and wraps on the child.
Maddie Brush wrote, “Evie received some major gifts for her 1st birthday. Her surgeon laid the groundwork for her new foot and mobility it will bring, by way of a boyd amputation. Another gave her some extra mobility in her hand, by clipping her webbing she had in her right hand. She is home and recovering beautifully.”
Sister Wives Spoilers: Evie’s Rare Genetic Disorder
When little Evie was born, Madie found out that she had a rare genetic disorder that is called fibular aplasia, tibial campomelia and oligosyndactyly sydrome. This disorder can affect the way the bones grow in the child’s body during development and Sister Wives’ Maddie was very concerned and surprised at first.
Janelle Brown’s daughter Maddie told fans, “We were shocked. I was just sitting there trying to comprehend what’s going on, having just had a baby as they are bringing in all these specialists. I was freaking out.”
She continued saying, “That said, we felt not being open would be even worse and make Evie feel ashamed for something that makes her all the more special in our eyes… As far as we have been told, with fewer than 10 recorded cases of her specific findings, it’s unclear what causes the condition. She is healthy in every other way aside from the missing bones. As a family, we have decided to be open as we walk through this journey. We want Evie to always feel pride in who she is, and all that God gave her!”
