Today was our first appointment with the geneticist. She started throwing out all these symptoms and possibilities, and we just answered questions about our family history as best we could.
History of seizures? No. In the family? No. What did your father die of? Heart disease. And your father in law? Pneumonia. Do you know of any person in your family with a learning disability? No, not that I’m aware of.
Lots of questions. No answers.
A form to take to the lab later today. Results will be back in three months.
Will we find out anything before then?
If something comes up on the exam, you’ll be called in earlier.
I hope the phone rings the day before to confirm the appointment. This is a doctor I wouldn’t mind getting no answers from.
