This site is all about Kjs journey with perthes disease and following his road to recovery 😊. Kj was diagnosed with perthes disease when he was 6 years old. Currently his perthes disease is affecting his left hip. After many rounds of phsycially therapy, bed rest, wheel chair, crutches, and no sports activities, we are faced with a big obstacle. Kj will be going through an extensive osteotomy surgery. His surgery is scheduled for Feb 1st and the rest is still unwritten. He will be in a large cast for at least 6 weeks, and will be in full extension from waist  down . His schooling will be done at home, with hopes he can go to school twice a week for an hour a day .life as  he  knows  it, is going to change  I thought it would help us as a family to create this ,share our story and get through these rough days ahead. We are ready to tackle this disease! #pertheswarrior
