I am sitting here with an envelope full of 69 pages of Eli's report. We got it this afternoon and have already read thru it like 5 times.
Stage 1 of our journey has finally ended.
We found out at 18 weeks of pregnancy on July 28th, 2009 that there was a problem with our little man. We found out today at 18 months of age what that problem is.
Eli has Mitochondrial Disease Complex I and Complex III and OXPHOS. He also has multiple deficiencies, immune system issues and multiple other things.
I am sooo relieved to finally have an answer, but heartbroken as well. Not having 100% definitive results gave that tiny glimmer that they could all be wrong, and that glimmer is completely gone now.
We are unsure what's next. Atlanta wants Bob and I to come for a long sit down talk with them. Eli's pediatrician here is getting rush appts with neurology and genetics.
I am slightly dazed as I can't believe we are here, that this is truely the road we are on.
Right now I don't have much to say as we as a family are still trying to absorb it all. I will update more in a few days. Right now I just need to snuggle my little man.
