Worst night ever

I found out that I am a carrier for Sickle cell anemia and that if my partner has it to my son can get it on top of the fact of there being a chance of him being a premature baby he may now have to deal with this.I have also been hospitalized for the past week because I have a thinning cervix. I don't think I can handle anymore bad news.

Sickle cell is a very very serious  illness that should not be taken lightly. If I were you I would do as much research and ask your doctor as many questions asks you can just so you are prepared to be on the safe incase this is something your son has. It will be helpful to know assess much as u you can so you can get your son the care he will need
