I've lived with fear for months that my sister's genetic disposition to mood disorders might affect her after the birth of my niece. I've felt fear that my niece might wind up with the bad genes, although she is less likely than a child of mine would be. I don't think in our family there is a "safe" from these genes.
As I've discussed from time to time I have a birthmark that is pretty significant in size and coloration. I also have what I suspect is a birthmark on my kidney, although that is not medically confirmed; we only know I have a vascularized area growing on my kidney and that it bleeds. Although the kind I have is not allegedly genetic, my sister also has one which is much less significant and generally only somewhat visible and easily covered by basic foundation (it's basically a typical newborn stork bite that never faded, making it a real birthmark).
Well, I had wondered about that from time to time. I figured that the baby had a higher risk of birthmarks, and she does have a large stork bite that I'm suspicious will turn out to be partially portwine stain, just like her mother and I. I forgot to think about all the other things babies can have. And there is a chance that she has something which is not terrible, but which may impact her life in a way you don't want to think of for a 10 day old. The doctor wants scans, but it's not urgent or anything, just nerve-wracking to think of.
Regardless, please pray for these itty bitty feet and all that is attached to them. (that is my "normal" hand and the side of the birthmarked one that has splotches to small to show in this blurry picture).
