WDSD Post 2 Perspective
For day 2 pic for WDSD - at 20 weeks we found out that twin 1 HAD a major heart defect and MIGHT have DS. At 2 months Hannah had heart surgery. I took this photo of her chest the night before...the last view of her without the ''zipper". I remember the fear like it was yesterday. They tell you the surgery is 'routine' these days and success rates high...still when I took this photo the thought that I did not dare to utter was that it would be our last of her... Hannah's heart defect is one that is reasonably common in kids with DS and believe me - it is WAY scarier than any diagnosis of an extra chromosome.
