My name is Dolores Rodriguez and I am a single mom to my son Malaki Rodriguez. Malaki has osteogenesis imperfecta type
7. This condition causes brittle bones,brittle teeth, bone deformity, bone pain, short stature, spine curves, low bone density, loose joints, ligament laxity,
muscle weakness, hearing loss, respiratory problems, vision problems, skin hyperlaxity, cardiac issues, fatigue, basilar invagination, and skin, blood vessels and internal organs may be fragile as well. Malaki was also diagnosed with pdd-nos and adhd, which don’t make the best combination with having brittle bones. He has fractured so many times that I have lost count.
Being a single mom and the only caregiver for Malaki can be overwhelming at times. I home school him for medical reasons and care for him 24/7 The main obstacle we have is that I am unable to work and there are so many things that are needed to take care for Malaki. The main thing we are struggling with is purchasing a bigger vehicle that can transport his electronic wheelchair. Since Malaki’s condition has so many different areas that it affects we have to be very careful in everyday life.
