Heather..

Can I be nosy for a second? I've been following your CSV (I think it was?) post and just read on the pic thread you were talking about chromosomes missing etc.

Can I ask what it's all about? Did you have something happen with DD?? :comfort:

Tell me to hush if I'm being too nosy. lol..

Nope, not too nosey.

My DSD (Step Daughter) has part of a chromosome missing. She's 15 but mentally she's 1.5 years old. She will never grow up. She can't talk, toilet or feed herself. On most days she can't even open doors. (sometimes she gets lucky, lol) It's really quite sad.

That's why we had DD tested with a CVS when I was pg with her and we had this baby tested too. DD is fine and we're waiting to hear on this baby. They say DSD's condition is de novo which is sort of like a freak occurrence...so I'm feeling very positive that all will be fine.

This is what my step-daughter has. She is considered severely retarded. Sad

What is Phelan-McDermid Syndrome?

:x where did my response go??? Stupid phone ate it!!

I saaaaiiiiddddd...... :roll:

That's right.. It didn't click that DSD and DD are related via dad and you're just precautionary testing. I also said I'm still stalking and watching to hear everything is a-ok and perfect!! Smile

Yup yup, DSD has the same dad as DD and new baby. I'm pretty confident that everything is going to be fine...but I just want to KNOW!

No email today so I guess I'll be next week now. Sad My friend who works out of town is here right now and coming for a visit tomorrow...so I guess I'm telling her when I see her. Blum 3 Also, a few other girlfriends are coming over tomorrow evening to visit with her so they'll know too!
