Sorry it has taken me so long to update, we have had a lot to process lately.
Things we know
1. Jenna has hydrops really bad, the fluid seems to be getting worse around her body
2. She tested positive for Trisome 21, which is Down Syndrome.
3. There is also a problem with Chromosome 18. They do not know alot about 18, but the Genetic counselor put it like this- It is like writing a letter if you were to forget a word or two the letter would be readable, but if you are missing a paragraph you couldn't read it and that is a problem. Well, she is missing a paragraph. Kurt and I got tested Friday to see if we are carriers for this genetic problem. We will know the results on Thursday. Knowing that she has a problem on 18 means that she would have more mental problems than just the Down Syndrome.
We go back to the doctor on Monday and we will have all our test results back and do another ultrasound to see how things are going. Then hopefully the doctor can give us some good insight as to what will happen and when.
For now we are just taking things one day at a time. I have been going in and doing blood pressure checks and hearing her heart tones to make sure we are both fine. They are still worried about me mirroring her and getting sick, but so far I have been fine. We pray that the Lord will do what is best for our sweet little Jenna, even if means taking her from us too soon. With his help we can get through this! Thanks for all the prayers and thoughts sent our way- we love you all and appreciate it!!
