Like you, I never heard of MCAD until 5 days ago. I, however, am a lucky Mom. I didn't loose my precious Sydney like you lost your daughter Alexis. Sydney, like Alexis has been a healthy child with no medical problems until a few days ago. She was sick and throwing up. Early Monday morning, my ex husband found her awake but unresponsive. He knew something wasn't right and called 911. Luckily the EMTs checked her sugar and saw she had a reading of 23. She was on the verge of death. They gave her a shot of glucose and brought her around. But once at our local hospital test after test was done to figure out why Sydney had gotten so sick so fast. Everything came back negative. Upon the advise of a nurse(also a friend) I had Sydney transported to Vanderbilt Children's Hospital in Nashville. They too began test after test but suspected MCAD all along. It was confirmed yesterday and now I know what to watch for and feel so lucky that I didn't lose my little girl like you did. Your right, this is an easy find but most Drs don't even test for it. I have an older daughter who will be tested very soon to make sure she doesn't also have it. My heart goes out to you.
