Girl, born September 2008
Such a little sweetpea!
Little Sally has perinatal exposure to HIV; she was born slightly prematurely, at 35-36 weeks gestationally.
She was born with Down syndrome, and a heart defect; an open atrioventicular canal. Complete form of atria septal defect – 4 mm, membranous ventricular septal defect – 10 mm, circulatory insufficiency 0-1 We have no report of surgery at this time — so it would be imperitive to get her checked up by a cardiologist as soon as she comes home.
She also has some myopia (nearsightedness), so she’ll need to see an ophthamologist once she’s home, as well.
More photos available.
Sally’s grant of $3630.00 has been gifted to Veronika and Haven.
