My newborn has extra genetic material on his 7th chromosome

My new born has extra genetic material on his 7th chromosome. From what I understand it is on the long arm of the second 7th chromosome. He was born with a cleft lip and pallet, hypo-somethinganother in his kidneys( pretty much he retains urine in his kidneys.),hardening on the right side of his heart, a small penis, I can't quite remember the technicle term the doctors used.  But anyhow I'm waiting on the labs and test results to come in and I was just wondering if anyone had any info I might be able to use just to kind of prepare myself. I've looked up duplication of the 7th chromosome and trisomy 7q and chromosome 7 mosaic but I'm not qute sure if he falls in any of those catagories. Can someone help?????
