Ava has had all the above as well as DNA, MtDNA, rigid and flex. brochoscopies, LP, Muscle biopsy, skin biopsy, CT scans, MRIs , liver biopsy, u/s, Complete metabolic work-ups, EEG, ECHOs, etc... So many more....

Most of these have shown us effects of her Mitochondrial disorder. It's a devastating disease.

If you don't mind me asking what is it? Do the mitochondria not function properly or are there too few/too many?

Ava's don't function properly. This can system failures. Right now it effects her GI, liver, pancreas and immune system.
