MRI Results

We got the results yesterday afternoon from Abby's MRI. It was okay news... not the "all clear" I was hoping for. Her corpus callosum is thin in the back. They said that her posterior corpus callosum (near the splenium) is thin but attached. Also her ventricles are even larger than expected in the region in front of the frontal horn.

Now they want to test her for a genetic anomaly and metabolic causes. They will be testing her for problems with her amino acids, oranic acids, lactic acid and pyrovate. Then they will be doing a keryotype and a Molecular based analysis. The neurologist said that it is possible she has a slight rearrangement in her chromosomal makeup. He doesn't feel that we are looking at anything severe or catastrophic but they want to know what is going on. If it were metabolic we need to know because those disorders need to be treated immediately. He also notes that either one of these things would be rare so not to expect to find anything.

So Monday we will go back to CHOP for blood work and urine test which could mean sedation and a catheter. The doc thought that we might have the results in a week. Hopefully we can figure out what is going on with her. None of it is terrible because it probably just means motor delays (which we know she has) but we have to be sure it isn't metabolic.

About this blog

Over 8 years we have struggled through 3 IUI's, 6 rounds of IVF, several RE's, hundreds of appointments and the loss of three little angels. Now we find ourselves the proud parents of two perfect little girls and a wonderful little boy!!

Both of our girls struggle with some disabilities but that won't keep us down. Each day has it's own brand of insanity but we love it. Most days I am more monkey wrangler than mother but I do the best I can. Todays goal - getting to tomorrow.
