The Next Step

I took my youngest son to see his pediatrician to screen for a common genetic disorder called Neurofibromatosis after our doctor became concerned. She determined that he did have the qualifying cafe-au-lait spots for taking the next step of screening. So now he’ll see an ophthalmologist to dilate his eyes and look for lisch nodules in the iris, which are small hamartomas (benign tumors) that don’t affect sight but are another criteria for Neurofibromatosis.

My youngest is getting a kick out of all the attention his body spots are getting and I have a gut feeling that this is going to turn out just fine and we have nothing to worry about.
