We had our appointment with the neurometabolic team at OHSU on Tue. The results of the muscle biopsy are not in yet. They are still strongly suspecting a mitochondrial problem. The lab results they have run thus far as well as Cara’s clinical picture fit with an “energy issue”, this is the term the docs like to use. They took a flap of skin at the same time as the muscle. The reason for this is that they will culture it and put it on ice for future testing. Our next appointment with neurometabolics is July 5th. They are confident that there will be a diagnosis or at least a clearer picture of what is going on by then. I sincerely hope so.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there! What an amazing, difficult and rewarding job we have! I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
