About Me

My photo
Hi I’m Jen- I'm one lucky lady to be married to the most wonderful man, Jason. I am a mother to three beautiful children, Grant, Norah, who was born with hydrocephalus, and Mason. I love spending my time with my family. I also like to challenge myself with new things. I'm on a constant quest to become more organized, it may never happen but it's a dream. I currently work part-time as a RN in an emergency department. I love this journey of life that I am on with God by my side, knowing that all things are possible when you Believe.

The Results Are In

Back in January, Norah saw Dr. Dimmock, a genetics specialist at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. After meeting with him we began genetic testing to see if we could get any closer to the cause of Norah's aqueductal stenosis and hydrocephalus. Today I can tell you we are no closer to finding a cause. All the tests have come back negative. She had chromosomes mapping, macro and microarray testing, as well as some specific genes tested.

I love being able talk, read blogs about, and share stories with other people that have hydrocephalus to see if they have any similarities to Norah. I know others that also have a 13th set of ribs, and have seen pictures of kids that have birth marks like Norah. Maybe there is something else out there that just hasn't been discovered yet...but would it make a difference....would it change her outcomes....it wouldn't change how much I love her...
