Sarah is born!


Sarah Klor arrived on 9-14. She weighs 7 lbs and was 19 inches long. Her delivery went very well and she is a healthy & happy little girl! We are waiting on the results of the genetic testing from Baylor in Texas and we were told we should hear back from them in at least 3 weeks, maybe 2. They did some early testing of blood & urine at Duke the day she was born. The urine came back clear, but the blood showed a little trace of guanidinoacetate. However, the geneticist said that based on the results, she still thinks that it looks more like she does not have GAMT. There hasn't been much testing done on infants to even know what normal would look like in infants. However, they did some research and found 3 infants in the USA that were carriers of GAMT, but did not have GAMT and at infancy they had slightly elevated levels of guanidinoacetate. There is a very high chance that Sarah is going to be a carrier of GAMT, so we are hoping that she is only a carrier of the gene and doesn't have it.
