Medical diagnosis

I found out a few weeks ago that Derek has a rare chromosomal disorder. He's one of 60 known cases worldwide. He had genetic testing done in May and we just got the results. I've haven't been on much lately because I've been spending alot of time in online groups for his syndrome. He seems to have a fairly mild case and there is medicine to help with his energy level. This is the reason he has speech problems. At least now I have some answers. My dd has to be tested next and if she has it the baby has a 50% chance of having it or of being a carrier.

Oh my! I hope that the meds start to help him and that you can learn as much as possible about this disorder. I hope that you get good news once your dd is tested!

I'm sorry, Malley. I know having answers can help, but these aren't the answers you were hoping for. Hopefully the support groups and medical providers will give you many helpful strategies moving forward.
