Sister Wives Spoilers: Maddie Brown Brush’s Baby Update, Evie Slam Dunking All Milestones!
Sister Wives spoilers reveal that Evie Brush was diagnosed with FATCO. It is a rare syndrome that results in bones not being formed correctly, which can cause problems with everyday living, even walking. Fans were horrified when her foot was amputated, but the best decision was made for Evie Brush by her parents and doctors. Check out the little girl’s amazing progress!
Evie Brush Diagnosed With FATCO
According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, FATCO is the acronym for Fibular aplasia, tibial campomelia and oligosyndactyly syndrome. It also goes by several other names. Some of these include Hecht-Scott syndrome and Limb deficiency-heart malformation syndrome. It is a rare genetic condition that causes congenital limb malformation.
Evie was diagnosed with FATCO the day after she was born. Maddie’s daughter was missing a thumb and toe. She did not have a fibula bone, which is located in the calf. Her tibia was bowed, which is the shin area. Also, two of Evie’s fingers were fused together.
Sister Wives Spoilers: Foot Amputation
During Evie’s first year, her foot was amputated. A lot of people criticized the decision, but all parents do what’s best for their children. Also, Evie was under the care of doctors and specialists. What may seem extreme to us might provide a child with the best quality of life possible. This certainly seems to be the case because Evie is walking, running, exploring her surroundings and can do everything other children her age can do!

This Is Her ‘Normal’
Sister Wives spoilers reveal that people can adjust and adapt to pretty much anything, especially when they are so young. The body and mind will find a way to make the body work. Blind people rely on their other senses to make up for no eyesight. Deaf individuals use the vibrations from the ground and walls to “hear music.” Those who have no lower limbs learn to move their bodies just as well (even not better and fast) than two-legged people. Evie has done something similar with her prosthetic leg and even uses her “pincher” hand in a way that works for her.
On Instagram, Maddie has been sharing photos of Evie and has reached every single milestone at the normal age and time frame. She is walking, running, dancing and climbing! This is Evie’s “normal” and she is doing amazing! She looks like a very active, healthy and happy little girl. In fact, her prosthetic foot even got a manicure, complete with neon pink toes! We are thrilled that she is doing so well and can’t wait to see more updates on baby Evie as she continues to thrive.
