When author James Reston Jr.'s daughter Hillary was 18 months old, she suffered a mysterious high fever for five days, then appeared to recover. But within a few months it was obvious that that episode had fundamentally changed her. Instead of learning and progressing, Hillary was regressing. She suffered inexplicable seizures, and ultimately, kidney damage that resulted in years of dialysis. Reston now writes about Hillary and the way she changed her family, in a book called Fragile Innocence.
