My daughter was born about 6 months ago by c-section. I got to hold her for about 5 minutes and then the doctor came in and said she had to go to the Nicu 2 towns away. awful. but he wouldnt tell us why.(we didnt know before she was born) but we knew when we saw her. The information that they gave us to read at the Nicu was horrifing. Nothing but problems and death why do they do that. luckily Emma is just about perfect. Her last heart ultra sound was today and aside from a little low tone she is right on schedual and very healthy. Why is it that noone shares these kinds of stories? I dont mean to affend or to make anyone mad I have 2 other kids with disabilities and I would trade there 2 for downs anyday. Emma has regular trisomy 21 we were hoping for Mosaic but nope. But thats okay because so far her only problem is tone. So to the pregnant moms or new moms out there with downs I make no promises but there is a light. Downs kids can be normal IQ have boyfriends fall in love and get married. And hopefully some day my little Emma will. So heres hoping that if you read the horror stories at the hospital that you can relax a little and know that it doesnt always end up that way and I know they like to prepare you for the worst but there should be a little of the upside some where.
