The confirmation

This morning at 11:30 am the nurse from the "high-risk" doctor's office called Trayc and confirmed that the amnio test showed that Tristan DOES have Trisomy 18. We do not know if it is "full" (in every cell and incompatible with life), "mosaic"(in some cells, able to live up to 20 yrs old" or "translocation" (hereditary in every pregnancy hereafter) and although we will not know which it is until Thursday, we know what we need to, it is Trisomy 18. We are still in shock, have had very little sleep since Wednesday and are feeling emotionally drained and overwhelmed. We are still at a loss for words, so please just keep us in your prayers!
