We just did our bloodwork yesterday so I would love to chat about it. I'm just running out to get DS1 from school - will come back to talk after dinner!

We went through all of this with DS1, too, but it sure doesn't get easier. But the genetic stuff wasn't so stressful in that he is adopted, so it didn't have the same implications for extended family if it had been a positive result. Oddly, though DS2 seems to fit the fragile X profile almost perfectly now (other than what I mentioned above), I had never even considered it for him until the neuro brought it up ... DS1 was tested a couple of years ago and after that I never gave it a second thought, although DS2 did NOT appear to even remotely fit at that time. I suppose that's why.
Thanks for the support also Uptownzoo - it's nice to know others have made it through the wait and survived, lol. =)
