My Eyes are Crossed, but I Found a Nugget of HOPE!

I've been reading and reading and reading. Today was a veg out day, we stayed in pajamas all day! Have no fear, I'll shower and change into fresh pajamas before I go to bed. :)

However, I've been searching the internet and reading until my eyes are nearly crossed!

Imagine my relief (delight? deliriousness?), when I ran across this:

Legius Syndrome Often Mistaken for Neurofibromatosis Type 1

Did you read it? Did you see this part?

"Legius syndrome typically follows a more benign course and clinical management should primarily focus on developmental and speech delays, learning disabilities, and attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder," Dr. Messiaen said.

I'm printing this article to add to the notebook we take to our appointments.

Legius Syndrome and Neurofibromatosis are two different gene mutations. It is common to have cafe au lait spots as your only physical sign of Legius Syndrome.

Oh please, Lord, let this be!!!!

Steph, I'm pretty sure someone should just confer an MD degree on you...between all the reading you've done for Annalise and now this...I bet you know more than most doctors!! I think I will just start texting you instead of looking at WebMD, haha.

I'm praying Stephanie!

Wow!! That sounds like you got some good answers!

No answers, Martha... but a possibility that is better than what is being suggested. ;)
