ok so i had a baby girl a month ago tonight! yay! anyways, the day were leaving the hospital, they said her jaundice was alittle high, but nothing they were concerned about. but they said my daughters ped would like to see her in the morning to check it. we take her in, they take blood and say her jaundice was fine, but her red cell or somthing was high and they had to take more blood and if it was higher than a 70 or something, she would have to go into the nicu. we came home, and an hour later they said it was fine.
a week later the ped calls me and says that the genetics test they took showed that she had one gene of cystic fibrosis. and normally you would need two genes to have CF, but they wanted to check her just to make sure.
has anyone else had this happen and everything be fine? they said that she has a 4% or less chance of having it, but im starting to freak out. like every little thing she does that is "weird" to me, i think OMG!
i need alittle reassurance to get me to the 4th of jan. thank you!

When we were children with my sister the doctors discovered every known and unknown illnesses on us. We spent our childhood ( ok, half of it) in the hospital just to find out that we are fine and we will live forever. I am a doctor freak. I had so many bad experience with them. So I was so glad when I found mine here. If I would be you I would ask second, third, etc. opinions. She is only one month old and the doctors have found many serious illness possibility in her. Do you think it is real? The test results keep coming back negative. Do not freak out. It is the time to enjoy your little girl:) If they do find something than you still will have time to deal with the problem. But until then just enjoy this precious time. It goes so fast. Babies grow up fast:( :D
