Hey, an insurance battle I didn't have to fight! We are approved for the genetic testing on Nolan.
I looked up the tests run by Boston University (where Nolan's blood will be sent), and their standard deafness panel consists of: Connexin 26 direct test, Connexin 26 sequencing, Connexin 30 direct test, and Mitochondrial A1555G Mutation.
I'll probably take him up on the 19th for the blood tests, since I have to pick up (what else?) earmolds anyway. This is a case of hurry-up-and-wait, since the tests take 4-6 weeks to process. If there is a positive result, the lab in Boston will call the geneticist. If there is a negative result, then the test data is snail-mailed back to the geneticist. I hope it is one of these, since they are non-syndromic. At least we can rule them in/rule them out!
