Cardiac blood flow studies in fetuses with homozygous alpha-thalassemia-1 at 12-13 weeks of gestation. (1/147)

OBJECTIVE: Fetuses affected by homozygous alpha-thalassemia-1 develop anemia as early as the first trimester. Our objective was to study hemodynamic indices in affected fetuses at 12-13 weeks of gestation to determine whether these would be useful in the prediction of anemia. DESIGN: Prospective observational study. SUBJECTS: Women referred before 14 weeks of gestation for the prenatal diagnosis of homozygous alpha-thalassemia-1. METHODS: Transabdominal and/or transvaginal Doppler sonography was performed to measure the flow velocities in the fetal ascending aorta and pulmonary artery at 12-13 weeks. The Doppler indices were compared between those that were subsequently confirmed to be affected by homozygous alpha-thalassemia-1 and those that were unaffected. RESULTS: Between June 1997 and April 1998, 60 eligible women were recruited. Doppler examination was successful in 58 fetuses. Of these, 22 were subsequently confirmed to be affected by homozygous alpha-thalassemia-1. The diagnosis was made by chorionic villus sampling and DNA analysis in two affected fetuses and by cordocentesis and hemoglobin evaluation in 20 affected fetuses. Hemoglobin concentrations could be measured in ten fetuses and these ranged from 4 to 8 g/dl. The affected fetuses had significantly higher peak velocities at the pulmonary valve and ascending aorta and a larger inner diameter of the pulmonary valve than that in unaffected fetuses. The total cardiac output was increased by one-third in affected fetuses and was mainly due to an increase of the right-side cardiac output. CONCLUSION: In the early stage of anemia, the fetus responds mainly by increasing its right-side cardiac output. However, there is extensive overlap of the values of cardiac output between the affected and the unaffected fetuses, precluding its use in the prediction of anemia.  (+info)

Women's knowledge, concerns and psychological reactions before undergoing an invasive procedure for prenatal karyotyping. (2/147)

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate women's reasons for having an invasive procedure, their knowledge, how information was obtained, their satisfaction with this information, their concerns about complications and psychological reactions and distress evoked by the procedure. METHODS: Ninety-four pregnant women undergoing early amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling (CVS) at 10-13 weeks' gestation participated in a questionnaire study. The women could choose between early amniocentesis (n = 38) and CVS (n = 31), or to be randomized to either of them (n = 25). RESULTS: Apart from two items, no differences were found between the groups. Age was the main reason for testing, and anxiety was stated as a reason by 38.3%. The women knew more about methods for fetal karyotyping, what the tests can reveal and how they are performed, than about the risks and reliability of the tests. The main source of information had been doctors and midwives at the antenatal care center. For a majority of women (64.9%) the decision to have the test was made together with their partner. The women's concerns were focused on worry about fetal injury, miscarriage and waiting for the result. The test did not have a major psychological impact on the women in general, but a substantial minority reacted with anxiety and distress. CONCLUSIONS: Knowledge of factors important to women and their concerns is essential for professionals working with genetic counselling and performance of invasive procedures.  (+info)

Studies of the mechanism of amniotic sac puncture-induced limb abnormalities in mice. (3/147)

The principal advantage of chorionic villus sampling (cvs) over amniocentesis for the determination of the genetic constitution of the embryo is that it may be undertaken earlier in pregnancy. If carried out too early in pregnancy, it has the risk of inducing craniofacial and limb abnormalities, a condition termed the oromandibulofacial limb hypogenesis (OMFL) syndrome in genetically normal infants. It is believed that the defects observed have a vascular origin, possibly due to anoxia of tissues due to fetal blood loss or thrombus formation at the site of biopsy with distal embolization. We believe that this does not adequately explain the findings from the experimental animal literature involving amniotic sac puncture (ASP). Based on these experimental findings, we have hypothesised that (i) the defects observed following cvs may result from the consequences of oligohydramnios following the inadvertent puncturing of the amniotic sac during this procedure, and (ii) that cleft palate and the postural limb defects observed (e.g., clubfoot and clubhand) are secondary to embryonic/fetal compression. Our experimental studies shed new light on the mechanism of induction of the limb defects seen, but particularly syndactyly. Evidence of hypoperfusion of the peripheral part of the developing limb bud is observed, which interferes with apoptosis that occurs in the digital interzones, or induces an abnormal degree of cellular proliferation and/or tissue regeneration in these sites, possibly because of over-expression of critical genes involved in limb pattern specification. Cleft palate, tail abnormalities and abnormalities of sternal ossification are also observed in our model.  (+info)

The use of chorionic villus biopsy catheters for saline infusion sonohysterography. (4/147)

BACKGROUND: Saline infusion sonohysterography is one of the recent refinements of ultrasonography that has the ability to enhance imaging of the uterine cavity in a safe, inexpensive and expedient manner. The technique can be difficult in women with a stenotic cervical os. This report describes a single-pass technique using chorionic villus sampling (CVS) catheters for saline infusion sonohysterography. METHOD: Saline infusion sonohysterography requires the transcervical passage of a catheter, through which saline is infused. The subsequent distension of the uterine cavity enhances the ability to detect intrauterine pathology with ultrasonography. In women with cervical stenosis, a catheter can be used in place of the more conventional two-pass technique, which requires the use of a uterine sound or probe followed by a conventional catheter. EXPERIENCE: We have used CVS catheters in women with cervical stenosis on 12 occasions. All have been successful and without significant discomfort to the patient. CONCLUSION: The use of CVS catheters for saline infusion sonohysterography in women with cervical stenosis can alleviate the need to remove the cervical probe prior to introduction of the catheter.  (+info)

The impact of placental malaria on gestational age and birth weight. (5/147)

Maternal malaria is associated with reduced birth weight, which is thought to be effected through placental insufficiency, which leads to intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR). The impact of malaria on preterm delivery is unclear. The effects of placental malaria-related changes on birth weight and gestational age were studied in 1177 mothers (and their newborns) from Tanzania. Evidence of malaria infection was found in 75.5% of placental samples. Only massive mononuclear intervillous inflammatory infiltration (MMI) was associated with increased risk of low birth weight (odds ratio inverted question markOR, 4.0). Maternal parasitized red blood cells and perivillous fibrin deposition both were associated independently with increased risk of premature delivery (OR, 3.2; OR, 2.1, respectively). MMI is an important mechanism in the pathogenesis of IUGR in malaria-infected placentas. This study also shows that placental malaria causes prematurity even in high-transmission areas. The impact of maternal malaria on infant mortality may be greater than was thought previously.  (+info)

Prenatal diagnosis of beta-thalassaemia using fetal erythroblasts enriched from maternal blood by a novel gradient. (6/147)

We have assessed a new technique for the isolation of fetal erythroblasts from maternal blood for the non-invasive prenatal diagnosis of pregnancies at risk of beta-thalassaemia. This method relies on the separation of erythroblasts from maternal nucleated cells by a novel step gradient and high speed centrifugation. In four of the six cases examined, single erythroblasts were identified by immunohistochemistry for zeta (zeta) globin. These were individually micromanipulated and analysed by single cell polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and subsequent sequencing of the region of beta-globin locus where the mutations most common to the region of Puglia, Italy, are clustered. In each of the four instances where fetal erythroblasts were identified by antibody staining, the fetal beta-globin genotype was correctly determined. To date, this represents the largest series of non-invasive prenatal diagnoses performed for this haemoglobinopathy.  (+info)

Maternal uniparental heterodisomy of chromosome 14: chromosomal mechanism and clinical follow up. (7/147)

To our knowledge, 22 cases of chromosome 14 maternal uniparental disomy (UPD(14)mat) have been reported so far. The majority of cases were ascertained because of an abnormal phenotype associated with a Robertsonian translocation involving chromosome 14. We report here on a child with UPD(14)mat detected prenatally and resulting from trisomy rescue in a maternal meiosis I non-disjunction trisomic zygote. After four years of clinical follow up, in addition to intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR), only short stature and small hands and feet were observed. These clinical data as well as the ascertainment and mechanism of origin of UPD(14)mat were compared with those observed in previously reported cases. It appears that the clinical spectrum of UPD(14)mat is milder in our patient than in patients with UPD(14)mat resulting from other chromosomal mechanisms. In addition, a hypothesis based on abnormal imprinting is proposed to explain the variability of the UPD(14)mat.  (+info)

A 47,XXY fetus conceived after ICSI of spermatozoa from a patient with non-mosaic Klinefelter's syndrome: case report. (8/147)

The birth of 12 healthy infants to fathers with non-mosaic Klinefelter's syndrome has been reported so far. The spermatozoa for these pregnancies was obtained from frozen-thawed ejaculate in one pregnancy (twins) and from the testis in the remaining 10 infants. All of them had a normal karyotype. We describe a patient with non-mosaic Klinefelter's syndrome from whom a testicular biopsy was obtained and motile spermatozoa were collected. Of 16 oocytes that were injected, 14 fertilized and cleaved. Three embryos were transferred, resulting in a triplet pregnancy. Karyotype analysis from chorionic villous sampling revealed 46,XX, 46,XY and 46,XXY from the three fetuses. The affected 46,XXY fetus was reduced on the 14th gestational week. The pregnancy culminated with the birth of a healthy male and female, on the 36th gestational week, weighing 3600 and 2660 g respectively. This case report proves the presence of hyperploid spermatozoa in the seminiferous lumen, and strengthens the necessity of genetic diagnosis of the embryos or fetuses in such pregnancies to fathers with non-mosaic Klinefelter's syndrome.  (+info)

Chorionic Villus Sampling: The diagnostic procedure of taking out a sample tissue (Choroinic Villi) from the placenta to detect congenital abnormalities in a fetus is known as Chorionic Villus Sampling (CVS).
Chorionic villus sampling (CVS) is a prenatal test that involves taking a sample of tissue from the placenta, a structure in the uterus that provides blood and nutrients from the mother to the fetus, to test for chromosomal abnormalities and certain other genetic problems.. The chorionic villi are tiny projections of placental tissue that look like fingers and contain the same genetic material as the fetus. Testing may be available for other genetic defects and disorders depending on the family history and availability of lab testing at the time of the procedure.. CVS is usually performed between the 10th and 12th weeks of pregnancy. Unlike amniocentesis (another type of prenatal test), CVS does not provide information on neural tube defects, such as spina bifida. For this reason, women who undergo CVS also need a follow-up blood test between 16 to 18 weeks of their pregnancy to screen for neural tube defects.. There are two types of CVS procedures:. ...

The Aim of this audit was to ensure that our teaching hospital was continuing to provide good quality care for women who were screened and presented with increased nuchal translucency (NT) ,3.5 mm. We had initial difficulty identifying these women.. We identified 54 women with an NT greater than 3.5 mm. The NT mean ± SD was 5.5 ± 1.9. Of these 46/54 (85%) agreed to an invasive test. Two women were referred to the regional fetal medicine department. Therefore 44 women underwent invasive testing within our department. Mean gestation age was 13 weeks for chorionic villous sampling and 17 weeks for amniocentesis.. All 44 were performed using ultrasound guidance using a 19 or 20 G needle. There was one failed attempt in those undergoing CVS and one with amniocentesis. There were no miscarriages in these women undergoing invasive testing. Five women required anti D and all received it. None of those undergoing testing had a bloody tap or post procedure infection.. Twelve fetuses had abnormal ...
Noninvasive Method Detects Risk of Down Syndrome. Using a noninvasive test on maternal blood that deploys a novel biochemical assay and a new algorithm for analysis, scientists can detect, with a high degree of accuracy, the risk that a fetus has the chromosomal abnormalities that cause Down syndrome and a genetic disorder known as Edwards syndrome The new approach is more scalable than other recently developed genetic screening tests and has the potential to reduce unnecessary amniocentesis or CVS. Two studies evaluating this approach are available online in advance of publication in the April issue of the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology.. Diagnosis of fetal chromosomal abnormalities, or aneuploidies, relies on invasive testing by chorionic villous sampling or amniocentesis in pregnancies identified as high-risk. Although accurate, the tests are expensive and carry a risk of miscarriage. A technique known as massively parallel shotgun sequencing (MPSS) that analyzes cell-free DNA ...
The need to reduce the rate of invasive screening (chorionic villous sampling, amniocentesis), and to detect the high risk pregnancies for chromosomal anomalies as early as possible, led to the concept of the sequential non-invasive screening, based on the Bayes theorem.

For decades, OB-GYNs have offered prenatal tests to expectant moms to uncover potential issues, including Down syndrome, before they give birth. However, some tests, such as amniocentesis and chorionic villus sampling, carry health risks, including miscarriage. For some women, the risks can be greater than the potential benefits from information they would gain.. Evidence now suggests that women who are well-informed about the pros and cons are more likely to decline testing, even when the tests are free, indicating that the average mother-to-be might not have all the facts.. ...

Types of Screening Tests. Screening tests can be both invasive and non-invasive. The non-invasive tests include blood tests and ultrasounds, and are considered safe. Non-invasive test do the preliminary screening for potential illnesses and disorders. If the non-invasive tests show a problem, a doctor would then recommend an invasive test.. Invasive tests include amniocentesis and chorionic villus sampling (CVS), and are considered risky procedures. The invasive tests usually involve drawing samples of amniotic fluid, which can be risky for the fetus. The invasive tests are used to verify issues that might send up a red flag during an ultrasound or screening blood test.. A newer type of test, the non-invasive prenatal test, can detect chromosomal anomalies and genetic conditions without the miscarriage risk associated with amniocentesis and CVS. These tests can sometimes return results faster than the standard invasive tests.. The Risks of Prenatal Screening. Miscarriage is the biggest physical ...

By Nancy Valko. In her February 2018 articlePrenatal Testing and Denial of Care, Bridget Mora exposes another dark side of prenatal testing: refusal to treat. Ms. Mora is the community education and communications coordinator for Be Not Afraid, a nonprofit that supports parents experiencing a prenatal diagnosis and carrying to term.. While most people have heard of amniocentesis (using a needle to extract and analyze the fluid surrounding an unborn baby in the second trimester), many people are unaware of the screening blood tests that have now become virtually routine for all pregnant women.. The difference is that blood screening tests may indicate a probability or risk score that a baby has a chromosomal anomaly, but a definitive diagnosis can only be made through amniocentesis or CVS (Chorionic villus sampling) using a needle to take a sample of tissue from an unborn babys placenta for analysis in the first trimester. Tragically, some parents make a decision to abort based on just a blood ...
CASE 4 Normal Infant Development Jasmine and Richard had mixed emotions when the pregnancy test came back positive. Their previous pregnancy was not successful because of chromosomal abnormalities. This had been devastating for them both, and they planted a tree in the backyard in honor of that child not meant to be. A human karyotype consists of 22 pairs of autosomal chromosomes and one pair of allosomes for gender. Fetal development often ends prior to the first trimester of a pregnancy, primarily due to karyotype deficiencies such as an extra chromosome, XXY, or a missing chromosome, X only. They were relieved when the chorionic villi sampling (CVS) test in the first trimester was negative for chromosomal abnormalities. CVS is a common prenatal test performed in high-risk pregnancies; the physician extracts tissue from the placenta for fetal genetic testing..

Amniocentesis: the process of withdrawing a sample of the amniotic fluid surrounding the unborn baby Chorionic Villi sampling: a prenatal test that uses a sample of the tissue from the membrane that encases the fetus to check for specific birth defects. Samples of the tissue are cut or suctioned off and analyzed
I am a State Registered Clinical Scientist and have spent the last 10 years working in the Nationally-Commissioned mitochondrial diagnostic laboratory in Newcastle. Our current testing strategy relies upon functional analysis of a muscle biopsy and selective candidate gene sequencing; whilst this strategy establishes a genetic diagnosis for many patients, approximately half our patients remain without a genetic diagnosis. I am particularly interested in paediatric mitochondrial disease, and spent much of my PhD improving the genetic diagnosis pathway for paediatric patients with mitochondrial disease through implementation of next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies within a diagnostic setting.. For families who have lost a child, establishing a genetic diagnosis means that we can offer reproductive options to Mum and Dad such as prenatal testing by either chorionic villus biopsy or amniocentesis enables us to determine - from as early as 10 weeks of gestation - whether their subsequent ...
Already sex determination and Rhesus factor diagnosis are nearing translation into clinical practice for high-risk individuals. The authors concluded that the analysis of cffNA may allow NIPD for a variety of genetic conditions and may in future form part of national antenatal screening programs for DS and other common genetic disorders.. Guidelines on prenatal screening from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the Society for Maternal Fetal Medicine (Rose, et al., 2020) state that: Prenatal genetic screening (serum screening with or without nuchal translucency [NT[ ultrasound or cell free DNA screening) and diagnostic testing (chorionic villus sampling [CVS] or amniocentesis options should be discussed and offered to all pregnant women regardless of maternal age or risk of chromosomal abnormality.. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (2012) stated that non-invasive prenatal testing that uses cell-free fetal DNA from the plasma of pregnant women ...
The objective was to determine the risk of sampling error in amniocentesis and chorionic villus sampling (CVS) in singleton and multiple pregnancies. Data from this and other published studies were used to discuss current practice guidelines for mole
An alternative to amniocentesis is a test called chorionic villus sampling (CVS). This is where a small sample of cells from the placenta (the organ that links the mothers blood supply with her unborn babys) is removed for testing.. Its usually carried out between the 11th and 14th weeks of pregnancy, although it can be performed later than this if necessary.. With CVS, the risk of miscarriage is similar to the risk of miscarriage for amniocentesis. However, as the test can be carried out earlier, youll have more time to consider the results.. If youre offered tests to look for a genetic or chromosomal condition in your baby, a specialist involved in carrying out the test will be able to discuss the different options with you and help you make a decision.. ...

Pregnant women are offered screening for Edwards syndrome between 10 and 14 weeks of pregnancy to assess the chances of their baby having the condition.. This screening test is known as the combined test, and it also screens for Downs syndrome and Pataus syndrome.. During the combined test you will have a blood test and a special ultrasound scan where the fluid at the back of the babys neck (nuchal translucency) is measured.. Read more about screening for Edwards syndrome at 10-14 weeks.. If the combined test shows that you have a higher risk of having a baby with Edwards syndrome, you will be offered a diagnostic test to find out for certain if your baby has the condition.. This involves analysing a sample of your babys cells to check if they have an extra copy of chromosome 18.. There are two different ways of getting this sample of cells - chorionic villus sampling, which collects a sample from the placenta, or amniocentesis, which collects a sample of the amniotic fluid from around ...
LONDON - Approximately 140 million babies are born annually, out of which nearly 5 million die in the 1st month of life, especially in developing countries. For instance, in India, 5-15% of sick newborns suffer from a metabolic disorder. This underlines the need for newborn screening, which could help to prevent disability and death by early intervention.. Today, the usage of ultrasound imaging and maternal serum maker screening for the detection of various birth defects form an integral part of prenatal care in the two first trimesters. However, still both these techniques have certain disadvantages of high false positive rates. If these tests show any possibility of increased risk of aneuploidy, then invasive approaches like chorionic villus sampling or amniocentesis are suggested for diagnosis.. In-demand topical study Global Prenatal & Maternal Diagnostic Market to 2021 prepared by Kelly Scientific Publications offers a detailed guide to the global prenatal and maternal diagnostic market ...
Instead of invasive procedures such as chorionic villus sampling or amniocentesis, definitive, noninvasive testing for fetal chromosomal abnormalities has long been the holy grail in obstetrics. It now appears practical to achieve prenatal genetic diagnosis using cell-free fetal dna in maternal blood.
18p- is a genetic condition caused by a deletion of all or part of the short arm (the p arm) of chromosome 18. It occurs in about 1 of every 50,000 births. The preferred terminology for this condition is 18p-. In the past, it has been referred to as partial monosomy 18p and, rarely, as de Grouchy syndrome, type 1. 18p- describes a deletion of the short arm of chromosome 18. About half of the people with deletions have a breakpoint at the centromere. Suspicion of a chromosome abnormality is typically raised due to the presence of developmental delays or birth defects. Diagnosis of 18p- is usually made via a blood sample. A routine chromosome analysis, or karyotype, is usually used to make the initial diagnosis, although it may also be made by microarray analysis. Increasingly, microarray analysis is also being used to clarify breakpoints. Prenatal diagnosis is possible via amniocentesis of chorionic villus sampling. 18p- causes a wide range of medical and developmental concerns. There is ...

Prenatal testing to detect Down syndrome is carried out with amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling. Both are invasive tests that carry about a 1% risk of miscarriage. Researchers said Tuesday,
Youll be offered a screening test for Pataus syndrome - as well as Downs syndrome (trisomy 21) and Edwards syndrome (trisomy 18) - from 10-14 weeks of pregnancy. The test assesses your chances of having a baby with these syndromes.. The screening test offered at 10-14 weeks of pregnancy is called the combined test because it involves a blood test and an ultrasound scan.. If the screening tests show that you have a higher risk of having a baby with Pataus syndrome, youll be offered a diagnostic test to find out for certain whether your baby has the syndrome.. This test will check your babys chromosomes in a sample of cells taken from him or her. Two techniques can be used to obtain the cell sample - amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling (CVS).

Source. Prenatal diagnosis. One of the most efficient ways of identifying carriers is considered to be prenatal genetic testing. Through such testing specialists will be able to find out if a fetus has inherited a defective copy of the gene from both parents. In this point, couples will have to decide if they want to terminate the pregnancy or not. Abortion can raise a lot of debates, but it remains for the future parents to decide if they want the baby to be born. Most common test recommended for prenatal diagnosis is the Chorionic villus sampling. This test can be taken after the 10th week of pregnancy. Mate selection Couples who plan on marring and conceiving a child can get tested before making such decisions. Carries can be found through various screening programs, so individuals likely to conceive a child with Tay-Sachs disease can find out even before choosing a life partner. This may reduce the risk of conceiving an ill baby. Naturally, there are many debates on this aspect, as well. ...
After genetic mutation is identified, amniotic fluid or chorionic villus sampling (CVS) is obtained during pregnancy which is sent to the genetic laboratory and evaluated for the previously identified mutation. Placental cells may be obtained through a CVS, performed at approximately 10-12 weeks gestation, and amniotic fluid may be obtained through amniocentesis, at approximately 15-18 weeks gestation ...
At present, women are offered screening for these three chromosome disorders at 10-14 weeks of pregnancy. The test combines an ultrasound scan and a blood test, and if it shows that a woman is at an increased risk of having an affected pregnancy, she is offered a diagnostic test, an amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling (CVS); these are invasive tests that involve inserting a needle through the mothers abdomen into her womb to collect samples of fluid surrounding the foetus or tissue from the placenta.. With the new method, women provided a blood sample at about 11 weeks of pregnancy. The sample was divided into two; one used for the conventional screening test and one held in reserve. The first sample was used to assess the womens risk of any of the three disorders. If, on the basis of that test, the risk of having an affected pregnancy was 1 in 800 or a higher risk, the other blood sample was automatically retrieved for a DNA test (i.e. performed in a reflex manner), without having to ...

PFSI008 How the Test Is Done CELL-FREE DNA PRENATAL SCREENING TEST What is it? The cell-free DNA prenatal screening test (also called cfDNA test) screens for certain conditions caused by an abnormal number of chromosomes. It does not test for all types of chromosomal disorders. Screening tests are used to estimate whether your baby is at higher risk or lower risk of having a certain condition. Diagnostic tests can give a definite answer about whether the baby has a certain condition. These tests include amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling (CVS). = maternal ... ...
You and your babys health and well being come first at the Diagnostic Center for Women. We offer Obstetric Ultrasounds for routine, as well as high-risk pregnancies.

In addition, the gender of the baby can usually be determined with this procedure. The Diagnostic Center for Women also offers Pelvic Ultrasounds for gynecological and fertility care. For further diagnostic testing needs, the Center also offers sonohysterograms, amniocentesis and chorionic villus sampling (CVS).. The Importance of Sequential Screening ...
Bad news: our babys neck was measuring much larger than it should be, which means there could be a chromosomal issue, like Down syndrome, or worse (as in the baby may not make it). The baby could also be fine, but Dr. C thinks its serious and wanted me to get a CVS (chorionic villus sampling) done - similar to an amniocentesis, where they stick a needle in my belly to get a sample from the placenta. The results would tell us what chromosomal issue the baby has, if any. She doesnt want me to get a cerclage if the baby has a condition incompatible with life, so she thinks we need to know what were dealing with. Dr. C wanted to do the procedure right then and there, because it is time-sensitive, but Logan (who was with me, thank God) and I felt very uneasy about making that decision right away. I already had an appointment scheduled with Dr. H this morning, so we decided to talk to him and to family and friends, before making a definite decision. In a way, it was a blessing that my appointments ...
