ADDISYN IS 2 MONTHS OLD AND WAS DIAGNOSED WITH CHROMOSOME 2 DELETION q24-31 the day after she was born. this comes with mental and growth retardation, microcephaly, seizures, cleft palate, heart defects, mild-severe facial defects, and other problems in each case. so far she is very small only around 6 pounds 2 ounces and growing verrrry slow. she pretty much has to be forced to eat. the genetic dr said that her heart appears fine so no problems there and her palate is short but not cleft. she does have contractures in her hands and her facial defects seem to be one of the milder cases. seizures have occured in about 45% of kids with this. she has not had problems with this yet. lots of referrals already and we were told to just wait and she will tell us what she can do.
