The mixed emotions of an atypical genetics test result

Can you remember what you did on Valentine’s Day? Do you recall what, if anything, you were given? The picture on the card? My memory of the card, celebrations and gifts is sketchy (sorry, Gary, I’m sure they were lovely). It seems like forever ago, doesn’t it? Well Valentine’s Day this year was the day I took Lottie to hospital to have her blood and genetics test done.

16 long weeks have passed since that day. 16 weeks of wondering, worrying, trying not to Google what conditions might cause Global Developmental Delay.

16 weeks of hoping that by mixing our genes, Gary and I hadn’t unknowingly passed on a condition which was causing her struggles.

16 weeks of driving myself a little bit mad.
