      Hi Patricia,
           It was good to hear from you.  Our son may have to be homebound soon
      too.  I hope to keep him in school to have the interaction with the other
      children but it is always a trade-off.   Anyway Dr Gail Herman (a
      geneticist with Ohio State) is part of a group that isolated the Xlinked
      gene responsible for x-linked myotubular myopathy. There is a test that her
      group developed to determine if this disease is present.  She will probably
      ask you about family history which is very relevant for the x-linked
      variety.  In any case she will probably have very helpful information for
      you to get a proper diagnosis. her e-mail address is
      hermang@...-state.edu. The previous address was no good.

      I hope this helps
                     Bob

      hi Bob and Sherry


      Thomas stayed sick alot in school and his doctor put him on homebound so
      his teacher comes here to the house to teach him,and we get the flu shot
      every years,he still gets sick but not as bad


      Thomas has has a muscle biospy on his upper thight and so far all they have
      come up with it is a Myopathy*without a name*


      I put a call  to Shriners Hospital in Houston,they are suppose to be very
      good with muscle dieases and Scolosis(which we just found out he has)
      Patricia (Mom to Thomas,age7,myopathy)

      Hi Patricia and Kathy,
            We have a son who has x-linked myotubular myopathy.  His name is Jay
      Jay and he is 5.  He is very happy and smart but very weak.  He is in
      school but is absent quite often because when he has a cold we keep him
      home and it takes him a long time to recover.  The definitive test for
      Myotubular myopathy is a muscle biopsy.  Dr. Gail Herman also can be very
      helpful for this.  If you contact the MYOTUBULAR RESOURCE GROUP
      (www.mtmrg.org)  they will tell you much more.  My son had a Pneumo
      vaccine
      last year along with flu shots each year.  He hasn't gotten seriously ill
      this year.  He is probably weaker then your son as he can not stand or
      walk
      on his own.  He has a trach and a Mic-Key (g-tube) button.     Kathy - Did
      your son have X-linked Myotubular myopathy  or  the Autosomal  type?  I
      don't know of any boys who are over twelve.  I am very interested in your
      experiences.
      Thanks,


                 Bob and Sherry
