Im sorry i have not posted any new updates until now, but I couldnt bring myself to type out all of the problems that have occurred.
We found out that Ava has Jacobsen's syndrome. A very rare genetic condition where she is missing the end of her 11th chromosome. This explains the problems that have already been found (the heart, kidney and bladder probs).
Last friday I went in for a fetal MRI and discovered that she has also experienced some brain damage. The cause is thought to be from her having mini strokes due to blood clotting. It is hard for the doctors to say at this point what this damage effected or what the result will be. Hopefully we will recieve more answers today.
But the decision has been made to have me enduced a month early and so far we are looking at march 19th for delivery date. With Jacobsen's babies thier growth is stunted and with Ava she is barely growing at this point. So there is really no reason to keep her in. We feel it would be best to get her out and get her some help.
The doctor's have been awsome as with everyone around us. We appreciate the support and kindess. At this point our hearts are breaking for her and just hope it all turns out ok. If you want some more info check out these websites. the first one is a site put together by those with JS kids and the second is a pamplet the genetic doctor found for me.
We love you all - feel free to give us a call. Love the Rebers
