my son was born with cromosome 16p duplication and cromosome 14q deletion which caused him to have cleft lip and palet cleft foot portal vein thrombosis small heart defect and alot of other internal problems he has been in the nicu for 2 months now they will be letting him come home tomorrow finally due to us aasking if we can bring him home and the doctors said it wouldnt be a problem but he will be back for surgery in 2 weeks from now and will be right back there again we live 2 hours away from where they are keeping him and its been hard for me and my wife to be there everyday with our other 2 kids at home its been rough but we been making it! my question is why didnt the doctors see this and or should they have or does this kind of stuff be unseen with so much defects he has..and nothing was seen.. they took blood test and did a quick sonagram and told us everything was perfect durring pregnacy so pretty much we were happy and went on our way i would like to know if anyone else had this problem with so many defects yet nothing was seen...also id like to add my sister just had a baby and they same doctor did th same blood test and found on her baby she had gastroenteritis so she was prepaired for what was to come and was able to have the baby in a bigger hospital cause we live in a smal town if they were able to see anything for our baby we would have been perpaired and we could have been ready and have the baby in a hospital that has the right tools...they were going to lifeflight my son to the other hospital when he was born like this it was a suprise but they couldnt lifeflight him do to weather so they drove him in ambulance...is there anything i can do about this or has anyone had a problem like this,,,thanks..
