The nurses know how to make even a blood draw look cute.
Things have been busy around here but here is a quick update on where we're at with Elise. At the end of December we took another trip to Primary Children's Hospital for possibly our last test. It had got bumped up 2 months earlier so we were pleasantly surprised. This was the Exome test that is quite new. Ez, Elise and I all got our blood drawn and will each have 20,000 chromosomes looked at. If Elise has any deletions or duplications then they will compare those with our chromosomes to see if we have the same deletions or duplications. If we don't then they will know most likely what the cause is and could give us more direction.We should find out any day on the results of that test.
Lately we have also been in contact with Katie's Clinic for Rett Syndrome in California. We've spoken to them, sent videos of Elise and sent over all her medical records. We'll be traveling to California sometime in the next few months to have Elise seen by specialists there so they can help us in knowing how to care for her, especially with her communication device. They have already been so helpful to us and I feel like we're on the right track. I'm excited to move forward on this path.
Life is so good :)
I LOVE being a mom to my 5 kids; one with special needs. There is no greater joy than being a parent! I love each one individually but this blog will mostly focus on our daughter with special needs and our journey with her. Thanks for reading!
