My son was diagnosed with down syndrome at birth 11-11-08. He does not have 3 21st chromosones. He has 2 and a tag on the second one. He spent over 2months in hospial for low platlets and heart surgery and is doing great now. However he stumped a lot of Doctors at Childrens hospital of Pittsburg. Does any one out there have the same thing?
