i seen some comments where your children had this and I was wondering if it effected anyones children the way it has my son. Kamden is 12 years old now but he was born wit hydrocephalis, which is water on the brain, they put a shunt in at 6 mths old and that helped with the seizures. he seemed to be doing much better then he turned 3 and he got very sick his hemoglobon dropped to a 4,and the norm is 14 they could not find a cause for this. they gave him blood transfusions to get him better. once his white and red blood cell began making them selves again the drs mentioned to us that he had a few features that resembled chromosone defects and with these two rare things happening to him maybe we should get him tested well we did and they found that he had the partia deletion of 16. kamden looks and acts like a typical 12 year old for the most part. he is small for his age and a little imatture. we noticed he wasnt learning in kindergarden and so we had him tested and he does have mild mental retardation from the water sitting o the brain for the 6 mths before the drs. found it and he also is hard of hearing. does any of this sound familiar to any of you guys?
