Genetics Appointment

Had Genetics Appointment yesterday. They had a few Vascular Specialists visiting from overseas and ended up with 12 in the room examining Violet. She was the perfect little model, standing there in just her knickers turning around for them all to examine her medical conditions!

This appointment is the first time I have had a chance to show the Geneticists and Vascular Specialists her lumps in her abdomen below her naval and the one on her collarbone since our last appointment. They were very intrigued by them.

They decided to take some blood for genetic testing and have sent it off overseas to have the testing performed. Extracting all the cells/DNA from her blood to test for various syndromes that can cause lumps like she has.

If the bloods come back negative for these, they will then take a biopsy from the lumps.

Should get bloods results back in next few months.
