Chromosome 15

We are in the process of genetic testing right now. Our genetic counselor has been super nice. She called us today to discuss the micro ray test that was done with Caleb's DNA. We learned that a little piece of his Chromosome 15 was duplicated. (A microduplication.) Kyle and I will be going in soon to get our blood drawn, so that they can look at us, and see if one of us has a duplication as well. If one of us doesn't, then they might do an echo on our hearts, to see if possibly something is different there. We don't have any concrete answers yet, but it's good to get information. This is all we know for now. A long process, but just hoping to get to the bottom of this.
