DiGeorge Syndrome... Really?

Dr. BK called back with final results from the genetic testing and they have confirmed that Grant has DiGeorge Syndrome.  Cathy and I gave blood last week to be test and neither of us were a carrier.  This is one of those things that just happen for no apparent reason. For now, we know as much as we can know  prior to delivery.  There will be more ultrasounds that may give us some information, but we just won't know how severe his symptoms are until after delivery and even years later.

Next Steps...  1st Appointment with the cardiologists on Friday 6/17@ 8am to sort through the Truncus and VSD.  We will also have a counseling session with Dr. BK to review the genetic findings and what we can expect after delivery.

I look forward to a post where I have some good news to share, but none to be found lately.  Click on the link below to learn more about DiGeorge syndrom:
More to come after our appointment on Friday morning.
