Rancho Cucamonga, California
My son Jeffrey was born 3 weeks early. I had a very easy pregnancy, labor and delivery. No signs of any problems. His apgar scores were 8 than 9. About 5 hours after delivery, a neonatologist walked in my room and asked if there were any problems with anybody in our families. At that moment I knew something was seriously wrong. He then informed us that the pediatrician saw some mild features and in 3 weeks I would know.
One week later my pediatrician called and asked, "Is this Mrs. X?" I said, "Yes," and he said, "Your baby has downs." I was in complete shock. I was totally ignorant. My son, at this point, has no physical or health concerns. We are going in for an echogram and we are very nervous. Jeffrey is the most incredible child. I know that we will always expect the most and accept the least. I do have Jeffrey on TNI and do plan on putting him on Pricetan. I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to raise such a wonderful child.
