We are a group of friends who have come together because we share the common bond of caring for someone who has Trisomy 21. We are here to share therapy tips, medical issues, laughs, accomplishments and yes, even frustrations. We embrace what Trisomy 21 has brought into our lives. We feel that it has taught us to appreciate the true meaning of life. We count our children as blessings! We will fiercely protect them and fight for their lives to be valued just as all other peoples' are. We share our pictures, our stories and our hearts here not only to provide friendship and support for each other, but also in the hopes that others will open their minds and their hearts to our unique children and, in turn, make a better world for everyone.

Response to Update...and more questions


YEAH! Second- the liver doesn't produce antibodies, the immune system does, but if your question is should there be detectable antibodies if the body has been exposed to hepatitis, the answer is yes, usually- IF the viral load is high enough (ie a large enough exposure).

Alot of people don't seroconvert after a hep B series and it means they are not protected, unfortunately. It's an immune quirk that happens to some people. Usually we repeat the series (or sometimes just one booster) and check again after a few months. Commonly, they don't convert after the second series, either though. My DH is like that.

What is the plan- are they going to do an ultrasound of his liver? That's such an easy test- no radiation- that it'd be a shame not to check it out and be sorry later, KWIM?

Did I answer your questions at all, LOL?
