April 23, 2008

Well, about the time I decide that I"m going to skip a day or two in updates, something happens that I just HAVE to share!

Seth is about the same tonight, still on the ventilator, he now has two chest tubes (one on the right, one on the left) to drain fluid he tends to accumulate in his chest.. He's been placed on antibiotics as a precautionary measure in case he has an infection (every now and then one of his tests will come back funky and they "worry" about infection and then it resolves)..

BUT the REALLY good news, the FINAL genetic test came back. Remember they did "karotyping" and that was 46xy (normal). This was a FISH test which looked specifically at ONE chromosone for a possible genetic disorder and it was NEGATIVE!! As far as the drs can see at this point, Seth is "genetically normal".. (and we had assumed that because he looks so good but it's nice to have it confirmed!).. YAY, God!!!

Okay, on THAT happy note,I"m off to bed!! Tomorrow's another day!
