just born & need answers help!

My sister just gave birth this morning and the baby boy and he unexpectedly has some health problems. This can't be happening to her again! She has a 5 year old son with developmental disabilities in special ed. classes. A two year old girl with Progeria. (speeds up her aging process 100 times) She already has arthritis, bald and has lost her teeth. And now their new baby was born this morning with what appears to me to be down syndrome. They tested him today for D/S because he has a malformed nose and lower ears. He tested negative. He did test positive for an extra chromosome though. They said there is another test that they need to run but it has to wait for 48 hours before it can be done. What else could this be???? Can anyone help us? I just don't know how much more my sister can take. Her daughter's disease is so severe. She is one of only 7 children n the U.S. with it.
She is beginning to question her faith in God.
