No results

No results yet from Finn's second genetic workup. What is interesting is that the first genetic workup done when he was a newborn only took 3 or 4 days from blood draw to results. It's been over a week now since Finn's second blood draw. What is more interesting is the fact that I haven't been dwelling on it. In fact, I hadn't given it a thought at all until it came up at my book club discussion on Thursday night. So that's a good thing, I guess, this non-obsessiveness about it on my part. Honestly, I just don't feel in any hurry to find out the results. I feel, at this moment, like it's not going to matter one way or the other.

Of course, that could change :/

I was wondering if you had heard anything...
Im glad you're not stressing about it. I'll be curious to hear the results, tho. : )

They probably did a FISH test the first time, which is more of a preliminary workup, and only takes a few days. Then they do the real karyotype afterwards which can take several weeks. In our case, they never even told us the results of the second one until much later, because it was the same as the FISH. So maybe that's why it's taking longer for you?

Keep us posted.
