I will tell you - 16 years ago I had a daughter with PRS. 20 mos later we had a perfect baby boy. It was not until 2 years ago that we found out I was the genetic factor in all of this - I held the mutation as well as passed it to our daughter. I urge you to have the genetic testing...if your doctor is not aware, we had our testing done at Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia. I'm sure if they were contacted they would be able to instruct you further. It's an AMAZING facility.
