Another Genetics appointment

well today Aleks had his appointment with the UK genetics clinic ..they told us he has grown a bit and looks like he is doing really well.. Markus was with us and they ask if they could look at him.We didn't mind so they looked over young Markus. the doctor showed us a spot on his chest where you can actually watch his heart pump. they called it a defect but nothing that would require medical attention. they want to see if the other doctor did a chromosome test to see if there might be some answer to him there. that kinda of stuff puzzle me so if they can learn something from it then that fine with us...
tomorrow is our Second gotcha day ....two years ago we were in estonia waiting to get our sons on the 11th ...they have both changed some much ..

YAY!!! markus has grown

well we had more doctor appointments this week. Genetics and endocrinology both went well.the gentetic doctor told me well he has Fetal alcohol syndrome.....i felt like saying Duh!!! i knew that since i saw his picture a year before he came home ....also he has a midline disorder another Duh!!!what does he think ACC is?????but the good thing is no more appointments to that doctor.
the endocrinologist was much smarter with my boy..Markus has grown 7cm since his last visit a year ago and put on almost 3 although he isnt growing alot he is growing , so for the time being no worry about growth hormones...we talked about the fact he doesnt chew yet, he isnt potty trained and he isnt communicating much...she said if you was in an orphanage with no loving bond to a mother or father . you would be behind as well.. she can see a huge improvement in him and says whatever we are doing it is helping so keep it up...
