Lucca is my 18 month lil guy... When he was born he was diganosed with severe GERD (i.e. reflux) and had it really bad until he was around 14 months old. He has very low muscle tone and didn't sit unattened until after he was a year old. He still isn't crawling/walking/talking at 18 months. He is also delayed significanty with his fine motor/gross skills and coginitvely as well. We just found out through bloodwork that he has a defect on Chromosome 22 and are having to see a genetic doctor to find out more I guess.. They are also making my husband and I get tested to see if we carry the gene. Are there any other babies out there like this?? If so I would love to hear from you moms.. I feel so alone because no one around me is experiencing the things we are and I know they don't really understand how I feel..

I have 2 children with the microduplication. Their father is the carrier. My son who is 10 has more symptoms than my daughter who is 14. Both had bad reflux and were late walkers. I do not recall any problems with sitting. My son was also a late talker and needed speech therapy. His speech is fine now. He does have significant learning issues and his psychiatrist says he is probably 2-3 years behind both cognitively and socially. He is ADHD, has processing issues, sensory issues and fights bouts of depression. If you have not had a chance, check out the yahoo group 22c. Lots of members with lots of info. However I will warn you that it can be overwhelming. There are kids with major issues such as g-tubes, etc but also some with mild symptoms. Treatment wise CHOP in Philly is the place to be. Hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions. Good Luck! Stephanie

Have you tried the Yahoo group or the Facebook group? I don't usually remember to come on here & check messages. My daughter is 18 mos. & in about the same place developmentally as your son. Feel free to email me at kimfuelling @
