I knew from the moment I first nursed my Katie that she was different. At her two week checkup I told her pediatrician of my suspicions....and the next checkup and the next checkup and the...well, you get the idea.
He did not agree with me. He didn't even support a blood test! As it turned out, only my mother believed in my suspicions....needless to say, a divorce, alopecia and 100 pounds lost, I finally pushed and fought the right geneticist!! Yeah!! Katie is Downs!! Wait...shouldn't this be bad news??? I was ecstatic that our two year fight was over...but it had only just begun. These past three years since Katie's diagnosis has been filled with high hopes and few disappointments. She is awesome!
