Red colors flow through my vein, but when I bleed, I’m blue. I cannot die, And though I try, All I see is you. Your like the first color that a blind man sees, Or the sky after a storm. With a rainbow of humor and a slight dash of doubt, Kind of the most human, human that I know.
So about a month ago, my son Kyle was DNA Genetically tested, basically going through his entire DNA markup to see if anything was wrong. -Due to the fact that he has had some problems growing up already… Speech, Motor Skills, Learning, Etc. Yesterday the DNA results came back, and today Kyle’s new mom Allison called me.
What He Has…Kyle has a deletion(missing), or damaged Chromosome 7. And I’m going to explain all of this so everyone can understand it. Chromosome 7 is one of the major major DNA parts, crucial to helping a human being grow. It essentially makes up more than 5% of the total DNA in our bodies. Chromosome 7 is a medically important Chromosome, which carries the Cystic Fibrosis gene and genes associated with diseases such as Autism and Leukemia. Many forms of cancer are associated with damage to Chromosome 7. In particular, changes in this Chromosome have been identified in cancers such as Leukemias and Lymphomas. A loss of part or all of Chromosome 7 is common in M.S, which is a disease of the blood and bone marrow. People with this disorder have an increased risk of developing Leukemia. Studies suggest that some genes on Chromosome 7 may play critical roles in controlling the growth and division of cells. Without these genes, cells could grow and divide too quickly or in an uncontrolled way, resulting in a cancerous tumor. -Now, Allison and Doug just got these results back. They do not not exactly what Kyle has yet, or what definite things Kyle is going to go through in life. It will probably need much more testing to find out what exactly he has, but here are some of the possibilities:
Greig Cephalopolysyndactyly Syndrome. (G.C.S)Abnormalities of Chromosome 7 are responsible for some cases of Greig Cephalopolysyndactyly Syndrome. These Chromosomal changes involve a region of Chromosome 7 that contains the GLI3 gene. This gene plays an important role in the development of many tissues and organs before birth. In some cases, Greig Cephalopolysyndactyly Syndrome results from a rearrangement of genetic material. In other cases it is caused by the deletion of several genes, including GLI3, from Chromosome 7. The loss of multiple genes can cause a more severe form of this disorder called Greig Cephalopolysyndactyly Contiguous gene deletion syndrome. People with this form of the disorder have characteristic developmental problems involving the limbs, head, and face along with seizures, developmental delay, and intellectual disability. -Now let me explain. For those of you that remember, Kyle had his 1st seizure at 11 Months. He then had his second on his First birthday. I went to Manatee Memorial the first time, and the guy fed me some bullshit on how Kyle had “Breathing Spells” and that he would grow out of them by the time he was 2, and was talking more. The second time we went to All Children’s Hospital. They did an Ultrasound, as well as a 24 Hour Brain Scan EEG, with 30 Electrodes glued to his head. Everything came back normal. But the seizures kept happening. And they still happen for Allison as well, about once a month, to once every 2 months. If Kyle has this Syndrome, it would make alot of sense. Why he’s had the seizures. Why he doesn’t talk, even at 29 Months, (2 Years, 5 Months). Why he has learning disabilities. It would explain a lot of what’s going on with him. Since after all this time, no could figure out what is wrong with him. Partial Monosomy 7p.Partial Monosomy 7p is a rare Chromosomal disorder characterized by deletions of Chromosome 7. Partial Monosomy 7p may be characterized by additional physical features, such as growth deficiency, musculoskeletal abnormalities, genital defects, structural malformations of the heart that are present at birth (congenital heart defects), and/or other abnormalities. In addition, some affected individuals may have varying degrees of mental retardation and delays in the acquisition of skills requiring the coordination of mental and motor activities (psychomotor delays). -This disorder, also makes a lot of sense, as far as Kyle’s condition goes. He was born with Genital Defects, (a Webbed Penis, which then turned into a different Defect), as well as his Mental and Motor skills.
Lastly, the most major noted Syndrome is Williams-Beuren Syndrome. This syndrome, which is characterized by growth deficiency, heart disorders and mild mental retardation, is associated with very large missing parts of Chromosome 7. It is the most common Syndrome in cases of Missing or Damaged Chromosome 7; -But Doug, Allison, and the woman who did the DNA results do not believe Kyle has this Syndrome.
Conclusions.Allison is not even bothering with having me tested. We all believe, since this is due to Genetics, that it is the father. The worthless piece of shit that he is, has forever affected Kyle’s life. Not only do they look exactly the same, but Allison and Doug believes that the problem was created through Mike. Mike has always had developmental problems. In learning, school, even simple tasks. But there was a problem at birth, and he lost Oxygen, and so that is what everything has been blamed on in his life, and for his Mild Mental Retardation is on the birth accident. He was never tested with anything else, and was just told he had ADHD. His parents never gave him the time of day and beat him. Mike himself could have a missing Chromosome, or damaged Chromosomes. So now I guess things will have to wait until Kyle is tested more, if there are even tests to be done, to find out exactly what is affected, or what he has.
