My poor little boys

It’s just not right that I had to watch both of my boys have blood drawn within a few days of each other.

Colin’s appointment went well last week. This doctor does not think Colin has FAS, but could not rule out “Alcohol-Related Neurodevelopmental Disorder,” which would not be as extreme as FAS. They did some additional blood tests and are doing a chromosomal study for other things I can’t even spell. We should know in about two weeks.

In the meantime, Noah has been very sick. We’re not really the praying type, but if you could send good thoughts/ karma/ whatever our way, we would appreciate it. He has some blood work today that indicates he may have Kawasaki Disease, a virus that can do permanent damage to the heart. He’s having a heart echo tomorrow morning. We don’t really know much more yet, but what I’ve read says that he may need to be hospitalized for treatment.

  1. Tracy, I’m so glad to hear the news about Colin; this is certainly a step away from what you had feared. And please keep in mind regarding Noah that you have caught it early, when it is definitely treatable, and that Noah has been a strong, vibrant kiddo, and that should really help him ward off any worrisome impact. Please keep us posted; you’ll be in our thoughts!
