Anyone hear of another baby with EHK and Down Syndrome? - 05/08/08 11:13 PM

I'm having my boy in late aug. or early September, whenever they set the Csection date.
I found out yesterday that not only does he have Down Syndrome, but also EHK.. We find out saturday if he has a heart defect also.

I just wondered if anyone had heard of a child with a case of each?

That's very interesting. So far no one can give me a Yes or No on a baby with EHK and D/S.

Sorry Cindie,
I've only just met another person with EHK. It is so rare that finding someone with experience of a baby with D/S and EHK might be very difficult.
I'm sorry that you are travelling in unknown territory now but I know that you have a lot of love and support in you and around you.

Good Luck!
