Incredible News!

This is not something I have talked about openly. When I was 5 months pregnant with Maddy we found out that one of our genetic reports had not been synced correctly at the lab and Bruce's results were not correlated with mine and Alex's. They came back in July showing that Bruce and I both carry a genetic mutation that is known to cause mito. (It is not believed that this is the cause of Alex's mito because he only has one copy.) While initially our intention was to not do any testing on Maddy until at least 6 months, when this information came to light it was decided she needed to be tested at birth. I got the call earlier this week that Maddy did not get either copy of the mutation. We are so excited to cross this form of mito off the table as it could have been very serious. So we continue to enjoy every day with this precious girl and we will see what the future holds.
