Return to the Geneticist: The plan going forward

Lizze did a great job today at Akron Children’s Hospital as did Emmett.  Many things were discussed but what came out of it was a plan for moving forward.

Basically,  the geneticist wants to do a very detailed chromosomal study as well as a complete chemical panel.

Looking at his immunological records shows that is IgA is out of whack.  However,  he said that is very common in kids with severe allergies. So that is likely nothing to worry about.

It will take about a month to get the results back from the lab and about a week to get insurance to cover it.  Apparently,  they don’t do this test very often.

Either way,  the hope is that we can maybe find some answers as to what is causing these health issues with him.  Also by identifying what,  if any,  the root cause is,  we can approach treatment in a more affect way.

For right now,  we are in a holding pattern until insurance agrees to cover the testing. Fingers crossed…
