About Leah's appointment...Dr. Longo feels that the GRIN2A gene may not be what's wrong with Leah. Chad and Leah both have a mutation in the GRIN2A gene...the big question is why is Chad normal and Leah isn't?!!! Chad and I have been wondering this ever since we got the test results. So...he wants a full DNA sequencing done on her and maybe the whole family. Well, this is CRAZY expensive!!! He said that the U of U is trying to get a grant from the government right now to do this genetic testing and they will find out in a month or so if they got the grant. If so, this can be done for free. If not, then we just have to see what our insurance will cover. We have always had a feeling that there was something else wrong with Leah. Dr. Longo said that maybe this gene mutation is just simply a mutation and not the cause of Leah's problems. He said we all have mutations. So, here we go again. Back to square one.
In the mean time... he is increasing her Serine supplement and starting vitamin B-12 shots. They also did a urine sample to rule out a couple things. We are also going to see a new neurologist.
We will keep fighting the battle!
