Mayson will be 3 weeks tomorrow! she is a tiny one. the smallest of all my kids but she was three weeks early! she is a very alert baby. doesnt act any different than our others did. she has no heart problems, no thyroid probems( so far),doesnt have the one line on her hand, etc.. the only thing was her eyes... and we knew she had downs... so they did the chromo testing and she has the most common type.....chromo 21. we are just thankful she is healthy.
grant wood is coming out friday to let us know what type of services they offer for mayson as she gets older, etc. they will come work with her here at home,etc.
hope that helps for you.. you can check out this web site to see her pic!!!

Hi Amy!

My name is Megan, and I live outside of Philadelphia. My second baby was born in September with DS. It was a huge shock to us as well. Unfortunately, we have been dealing with some medical issues as well.

I'd love to chat sometime!
