Ok, This is Cindie Carey (Hamilton) and I'm Karen Sawyers daughter.
well as you know my son was diagnosed via amnio of having Down Syndrome. I just found out a month ago and was waiting to find out if he also had my skin disorder called EHK. he had a %50 chance..
Guess what? He also has EHK. This saturday we go in to find out if he has a heart defect. which is a %40
I fully expect he will have some form of defect that is mild. But because of the EHK diagnoses, I now have to have a C-Section 1 1/2 hr's away. meaning my next child if I have a normal baby will be a VBAC. (I fully intend on trying)
I'm not too down in the dumps about this because even tho I've had 1mo to get used to the D/S diagnoses, I've had my whole life to expect a baby with EHK.. and to tell the truth, I always knew my first would have it. even if I can't tell you how I knew.
By the way, Does anyone in the SoCal area know much about Loma Linda Hospital?
I know it's a teaching hospital, but specifically how they deal with births of EHK babies? That is where I will be delivering.
