I just finished putting some calls into several Genetic Counselors. The earliest we can be seen is April...of 2008. Should I be surprised? No. I mean, did have to wait almost 6 months for a sedated ABR, and Christian finally got his aids at 9 MONTHS OLD. Waiting I guess is part of this game. And I hate it!
Some friends and family have asked us why we even wanted to do the genetic testing. The answers to this test are not going to influence our decision to have more children. For that, it doesn't even matter to us. Chuck and I just want to know if Christian's loss comes from a wonky recessive gene that we have, or if it was a spontaneous occurance. IDing the source of his loss will also help us rule out any other syndromes that sometimes come with SNHL.
So, we're just going to play the waiting game...something that we are all too familiar with !
