During the first routine ultrasound their Family Doctor stated that "something didn't look quite right" and referred them to a specialist.
It took two stressful weeks, but Karah and Kyle were able to see the specialist and get a better look at what was happening with their unborn child. The technician took several photos, each showing that there was a large amount of fluid surrounding the baby. They were informed by the Pediatric Specialist that their child most likely has what is called "Turner Syndrome."
Turner's is caused by a chromosomal issue known as a monosomy - where only one of the sex chromosomes forms (only an X instead of XX or XY). The baby only has a single X chromosome. This is very rare.
They were referred to another specialist for more testing. It is confirmed that the baby has Turner's. Now the biggest concern is for the child's life. Your donation will enable Karah to receive all the medical testing and care that she and the baby need. It will facilitate the healthiest outcome for mother and child.
Our son and his wife are seeking as many prayers for their family as they can get. Here are Karah's own eloquent words about this experience on Kyle's blog. http://thetalkinggeek.com/whats-wrong-with-my-baby-turners-syndrome/
They also need financial blessings. It is critical to monitor this situation closely. The many medical tests and time off work have created unexpected medical expenses. Expenses which will only increase the longer the pregnancy continues. Still they hope for a live birth.
Thank you for your prayers for Baby Souza and her mother Karah. Your financial assistance can help this young family by relieving some of the tremendous stress in their lives. Even a small donation is greatly appreciated. Can you spare $10 for this urgent casuse? Or $100?
