Waiting Stinks

Monday will mark FOUR WEEKS since we did the blood test for Ethylmalonic Encephalopathy. They told me it would take 3-4 weeks to get the results. I will be calling first thing Tuesday morning to see if they've heard anything. Please cross your fingers, pray, whatever it is you do ... this diagnosis would be devastating. I would MUCH prefer her to have Cornelia de Lange Syndrome!

The kids start school on Wednesday. As PTO President I have already gone back a few days over the last two weeks, to get things ready to start. We have had a relaxing summer, I wish it wasn't over!

Tomorrow we are taking Jake to Walking With the Dinosaurs, while Emily stays home with her nurse. Jake is SO excited! :)

He is coming down this next weekend. His testing is the 11th. They told him to plan for a week because if he passes the first test than that Monday he will do an interview! I'll ask him, he's been looking at hotels, but I don't want to pay for a bunch of nights in a hotel when I'm trying to fly to Ukraine in a couple of weeks!
