newly diagnosed with a cautious Becker's MD, info please

My son Ryker is 14 months old.  I just spoke with his neuromuscular specialist and she confirmed via his DNA and chromosome microarray that he has exon deletions 3-30 but the DNA test is showing that he is making minescule amounts of distrophin so she is cautiously diagnosing him with becker's but wants us to understand that by the time he is 5-7 it could change to Duchennes since he has such a large deletion and he could stop producing the small amount that he is now. She said that it is…

Brooke, Wyatt started walking around 13 months. He is still doing very well. At our last neurologist visit he was actually faster and stronger! He can ride a bike without training wheels but does get pretty tired. He has figured out how to limit himself by taking breaks.
We are actually going to the PPMD conference in two weeks. I hight recommend going if you get the chance. It is my recharge for the year.
Please keep in touch.

Hi Brooke. I just read your message about your son. My son Karsten has the same deletion as yours. He was also diagnosed young, 5 months old, it was a fluke we found out so early. He does have a diagnosis Duchenne, but I have been told it could be a severe form if Beckers. There is no way to know without a muscle biopsy. He is 6 now and doing well. I am sure you have lots of questions and concerns, I know I did and still do. I am willing to answer any questions you have about how my boy is doing and what it has been like so far, just ask. You can email me at
