There are things that have happened to Piper, either health issues, developmental issues, or physical issues, that I have always blamed on Down syndrome. And I’ve wondered what she would be like had that extra 21st chromosome NOT have affected that particular piece. Like, if she hadn’t have had duodenal atresia, would it have been easier for her to learn to eat in the beginning? Or if she didn’t have Ds, would the airway issues we had last year NOT have been an issue?
I’ve always KNOWN that Piper’s follicle impairment was obviously due to the fact that thin hair is common in individuals with Down syndrome.
Enter Addy Jayne.
To my horror, I’m afraid I must admit that she has LESS hair than her big sister.
