false-positivity

Posted in mousie at 8:56 pm by Anonymouse

I’ve spent the last hour and a half folding towels, putting clean sheets on two different beds, putting Baby Swiss to bed and researching false-positives on newborn screening tests.

You know, your basic Tuesday evening activities.

Wait a minute…

I heard from Pipsqueak’s birth mom.  She got a letter in the mail from the Department of Health stating that Pipsqueak’s newborn screening indicates that more testing should be done for Cystic Fibrosis.

You know, the number one life-shortening condition.

Stay tuned and think positive false-positive thoughts.

    I have had a few friends who have had to had their babies given the sweat test for CF. I think it’s a pretty common false positive. I’m praying for you that that is exactly what it is!
