Doing genetic testing, ♥ our pedi! (piog)

♥ our pedi! He does think Ty could have a mitochondrial disease, maybe one not even diagnosed yet, or possibly something thats never been found before. We're starting on a slew of bloodwork and seeing genetics! Here's to hoping for answers! He actually went online looking stuff up about it and is having his l-carnitine all tested right now and then is getting him Bayley tested. It's a bigger and ...better newborn screening test in texas I guess. So he is getting info from them and that test ordered for us here. Then referred us to a genetecist. He was really great and receptive to me. He thought I was on the right track for even asking and was impressed, LOL! I told him I had a friend  who led me here. :D He said it makes sense but there is so much out there to test for it so he said it could take awhile, but as long as we start heading down a path, we're going in the right direction eventually. :D He even hopped online to look stuff up for us right there in his office. And he is emailing me all the records he has of Ty to me so I can send them to the genetecist. AMAZING!

Honestly our pedi says its no worse than what he already is facing and the treatments can really help depending on which it is. If they find it is Mito.

Quoting zolanmel:
