I don't have the papers yet but i was told over the phone quickly some numbers that mean she has a chromosomal deletion. She is 6 now almost 7 and the symptoms she could have with it they said was small head growth, learning disabilities, seizures. she has all 3 and i am guessing many of her other issues could be related. she can not eat solid food only purreed or gags. She has been diagnosed with autism and shows a lot of those signs and we did biomedical with a dan! dr for years and loved it! She is very very intellient with facts and information. She also started speaking with b12 shots at 3 years for the first time and then 30 days later could read. Her first word she read was exit. She has terrible space outs hundreds of times a day. she mouths things still and we give her chewies. We love her very much and I can't believe we now have found sometime in her dna. I am scared and excited to know what is going on and how can we help.
