The results are in...

Just got a call from Dr. Smith, the geneticist, and Luc's test results came back positive for William's Syndrome. It's not the news we were hoping for, even though we were expecting it, but at least we know for sure.

On the other hand, we can get more help for Luc and give him a better chance at a "normal" life. He is really pulling up to stand or high kneel on furniture and toys and he takes little steps when you hold his hands, so we are making progress.

We are going to start him on Calcilo formula so he can drink something other than juice with higher calories, and trade off to have him able to eat yogurt, cheese and other dairy products, while not compromising his calcium levels.

He is actually able to play with his sisters more now and hold his own, except when Kateri uses him as her "horse" and rides on her back. Kateri is becoming a little brute. She likes to take toys away from the other two and hit people in the heads with cups. We have tried "time-outs" with her, but she will just walk away after a while. We just keep saying no and taking her toys away and hope that she gets the picture!

Sydney is just as bad because she will do things to irritate her sister and then cry when she gets payback from Kat. Nashoba has been the object of their affection as of late. He is getting pissed off at them because they blitz attack when he is eating. He's nipped a few times, and they still don't get the picture. Hopefully this stage too will pass!
