POSSIBLY INDICATIVE OF MITOCHONDRIAL DISEASE, BUT NEEDS FURTHER TESTING TO CONFIRM.Of course! This is after all, only a slight variation of the "ABNORMAL, BUT NONSPECIFIC" that we here at the Journey are famous for.
Our pediatrician called me yesterday and read the official report to me, which noted a decent sized list of abnormalities in her muscle tissue at the microscopic level, though, evidently it was not quite enough to say with any certainty if she does or does not have a mitochondrial disease. It didn't rule it out, though.
Normal people hope for normal test results, negative test results; we hope for test results that are abnormal enough to give a crystal clear diagnosis for once, one sparkling, shining, this is what your child has, diagnosis. It may not even exist, we may always live with the questions without answers, we might always start conversations about KayTar with, "Well, she doesn't have one broad umbrella diagnosis, but..." In truth, I earnestly hope it does exist and finds its way to us one day, a cosmic path crossing in which the Universe slips an envelope into my hand, whispering, "This is it. Really it." before continuing on its busy way.
