Parents fight for custody after misdiagnosed healing rickets

Two Texas parents are fighting for custody of their 18-month-old son after he was taken from their care when he was just 42 days old. The case started when the boy was just three weeks old while the family was living in Florida. The mother was changing the boy's diaper when she noticed swelling in his arm. After a trip to the emergency room with no diagnosis, the swelling returned several days later.

He was transferred to Dallas's Children's Medical Center, and the parents say they were immediately suspected of child abuse.
