It's been exactly a year since I last posted here. (Drafted a post or two, but didn't publish them). The last line of my last post was, "I guess it's just the time of year." I guess it is. Over the last several weeks, a friend has been put through the wringer, going through follow-up testing after a genetic screen showed an increased risk for anomalies for their little one. Because of multiple procedural errors with the lab work, the final diagnosis was delayed, and the tests had to be repeated. Finally, yesterday, they heard what they didn't want to hear. We're not besties, but my heart is breaking for her and her husband.
