Good News

So I heard from the genetics department at Children's Mercy today. They got our lab results back and both Dan and I are negative for having TSC. Which means two things. One that Emmaus' disease was a random genetic mutation and not genetically passed on. And two that us having future biological children is a possibility. There is still a VERY slight chance (1%) that it is a germ-line mutation (which cannot be tested) and that we could have another child with TSC. But 1% is a much less than 50%. (I mean people use  birth control without worry and that is 99% accurate- so a 1%chance doesn't bother me)

So God willing Emmaus will get to have biological brothers and sisters.

This makes my heart happy.
Almost as much as this little girl.
