Well I just got off the phone with our genetics counselor and I don't know if it is good news or bad. I guess it more good, but frustrating! It turns out there is no test they can do to determine if Vance has C or C like syndrome.:banghead :banghead :banghead They still want us to have an ultrasound done on his kidneys and once he has those results he will make a decision on whether he thinks he has one of these. I guess these are both very rare and the reason why he thinks Vance has one of them is because of all his "dysmorphic" features. I really hate that word! If he decides that he has it, he will sit down with us and explain what the future may hold. It seems his would be a mild case though because mentally he doesn't seem behind and he is reaching all of his milestones. He could have low muscle tone, (which I am pretty sure he does) and he will be a little shorter than his peers. (I don't see that as being a big deal, as most people aren't the same height anyway!) She said the likely hood of us having another baby with this syndrome is very slim. Statistically 25% of having another with it and 75% of a healthy baby. Unless they come up with a test to diagnose it, we may never have a for sure answer! I like having the facts, so this "guessing" thing is going to drive me crazy!! Oh well, It could be worse.
