They are here the results to our TrialNet screening. I was soooo happy when I saw so much mail in my mail box but as I counted I noticed something
Wait just a minute
Mine, My husbands, Kailyn's Kirstin's, Kylie's, Cody's and....where the hell is Connor's?
We are now officially waiting for Connor's. I have not yet gotten a phone call with a positive result and his letter with the negative results could still be in the mail...so we are waiting...UGH!!
I have been anxiously waiting for these results since September 15th when we all took the trip to get screened for autoanitbodies. HERE'S A LINK to a video of our trip
So what is in our letters you ask "The result of BLANK's screening test was negative. This means that no diabetes related autoantibodies are present at this time. This is not a guarantee that BLANK will never develop diabetes. It does mean that BLANK is currently at a lower risk than if the test was positive."
When you test positive for autoanitbodies they tell you to expect a phone call.
AND of course I know just because someone test positive for the autoanitbodies it does not mean that they will for sure develop type 1 diabetes. And I know that just because someone test negative for the autoanitbodies it does not mean that they will never, ever develop type 1 diabetes.
I know this but a negative test allows for a little breathing room.
I just hope that Connor's results are in the mail box tomorrow... fingers crossed!!
