I for one know that when I am in the drs office even though I ask a lot of questions, when I try to process it later its like it was a different language. It's so bad I take a notebook with me. And sometimes when you receive news like that about your child you're mind starts running 800 miles per hour. Some of us need time to process the information we're given before our tiny minds can form the questions we want to ask. We should all be as cool, calm & collective as Anon 8:22.
I hope that everything is O.K. I would just hit google & do as much research as possible so you can be well informed the next time you see the dr. It will make it easier to take in what they are telling you if you already know about the condition. My thoughts are with you & your baby.
