"Some days I have doctor's appointments. First we have to get there, sign in, then wait. Then we have to see the doctor. I bring my water bottle every day.” 

"Great family support." - Louis, Madison's father

"We have a great relationship. My wife is there. We alternate and do whatever we need to go. Lately, knock on wood, we haven't had a lot of [pain crises]. Most of the time, it's fever. Then we go in, and they take care of the fever. She bounces right back. So not many crises. We've been well." - Louis, Madison's father
