Chronic fatigue syndrome saps its victims, but new research may find the cause
Janet Dafoe and Ron Davis read notes written by Whitney Dafoe late into the night around 1:30 a.m. as they wait for him to give a signal that he is ready for them to enter his room. Whitney has often written that his stomach is giving him much pain and often seeks his parentís attention all hours of the night, which creates frustration for him when their exhaustion overrides being able to care for him some nights.
