New contenders..

So the doc threw out 2 new terms today - Fragile X Syndrome and Bipolar Disorder. Yay. We're still thinking Asperger's is the leader though.

On a much brighter note (I hope), we finally have Isabelle's OT eval this coming Wednesday. It should at least finally bring us some relief with an official diagnosis and a game plan!

I never thought I'd say this, but let's hope for Asperger's, yes?

I just checked out Fragile X, and by no means, would I think she has that. Izzy is a very smart girl who is having some issues. And I'm with MamaChristy, Asperger's. Mild case. We're here for you whenever you need us! Love You!
PS Maybe she is just one super smart but bored easily girl (like her Great Aunt Midge!! ) :-) heck, i'm clumsy, bored easily, particular about clothing/shoes, have my routines that if they aren't in sequence, it irritates me.

Apparently the Fragile X is very different with boys and girls... it's generally milder is girls because they have 2 X chromosomes, and it also doesn't necessarily indicate mental retardation. Threw me for a complete loop when I started looking it up, but after talking to the doc again, it appears that Fragile X has a lot of things in common with other disorders and it's just another things we can consider. It wouldn't really affect her treatment plan or anything, so it's on the backburner for now. We may revisit it in the future, if only because we need to know about any genetic disorders we could be carrying the genes for!
