Our first, and hopefully only, positive result…

Chromosome test isn’t back yet, but man’s pediatrician called today about the last blood test. 

His ammonia levels are elevated. What this means, no one knows yet. She spoke to a geneticist and they *think* he isn’t metabolizing something his body needs, like protein. 

We are going to have to go back next week for another blood and urine test. Dependant on those results, we might need one more blood test. Then off we go to visit a geneticist. 

What in the world. 

Don’t google baby ammonia levels elevated. It’s a nightmare. 

Other than that, man was perfect at physical therapy. His head control is getting better everyday! 

I mean, this man is beautiful. Ain’t he, though?
