My Mood:
Possible syndrome?

Ever since my DS was born the NICU doctors kept telling me that they think he has a syndrom their just not sure which one.
His tests have all come back normal, but they have a list of things that just arent "normal".
1.) mild dysmorphic facial features (they say he has a wide nasal bridge, small mouth, and recessed chin)
2.)clinodactatly (his thumbs are turned into his palms so they are curled under his fingers all the time
3.)epispadias (his uretha exits at the top of his penis instead of at the tip)
4.) he has fluid in his left kidney
5.) he has a grade 2 heart murmur
6.) he has central apena causing bradycardias (he came home on an apena monitor)
7.) they thought he had a simien crease in his hands but all my DHs family has it.
So because of all that they keep telling me that there is something going on with him.
They did every test you can think of in the hospital, while he was there for the first 6 weeks of his life.
When I look at him, most of the time he looks like a "normal" little boy. But theres certain times that I think I can see what they are talking about.

So after all that rambling, does anyone elses LOs have a sydrome that is undiagnosed?
