Hops everyone is doing well and getting ready for the holidays. We finally got the insurance company to approve Wyatt's Genetic testing YEA!! How long does it take to get results back? We also finally got to see Dr. Yan is was really nice to see a Dr. who actually knew what Ich is he suggested that I start using a lotion with 10% urea but said we need to monitor his blood to see if it is being absorbed. I'm kinda nervous about this because getting blood from him is so hard the local hospital actually ripped his skin with the rubber gloves and wanted to use an acohol pad on him I wanted to punch her. Thank to all for everything you have done to help me learn about my son and how to take care of him.

Ours came back pretty quickly. Our daughter's genetic test took about 2-3 months, and when DH and I got tested it also took about 3 months.

Goodluck! I was so happy to finally just have some concrete answers, even if they weren't the answers I wanted.
