When life hasn’t shit on you enough…

Just a quick post, not feeling up to talking about it, yesterday the consultant called with the rest of the amnio results (the bit that tests for all those niggly really rare things) Baby has ‘Mosaic Trisomy 9′.

Trisomy 9 is lethal and involves an extra #9 chromosome in each cell, Mosaic Trisomy 9 is the same but only affects some cells… how many/which cells we won’t know until he is born, he could be pretty normal or he could be very disabled, we will be meeting with the genetic counsellors next week to speak to them, also at some point the surgeon and doctors to see if they will still operate on the CDH… The consultant didn’t know as neither he nor his colleagues have encountered Trisomy 9 before.

To rub salt in the wounds the CDH is a separate entity and not related to the Trisomy.
