Muscle Biopsy

Michael had his muscle biopsy yesterday. It took all day, and it looked like it hurt a lot. They gave him local anesthetic and cut a 1" piece of skin, then removed a chunk of muscle the size of the tip of a pinky finger from his right bicep. So in a week to a month we should know hopefully what he has. I might not have gone over this before but they think his eyelid problem is chronic progressive external ophthalmoplegia and that he really has an underlying mitochondrial myopathy. So we will see what they come back with.
