In brief: VERY concerned

If you do not follow instructions exactly, your daughter will end up severely disabled.
If you comply, she should have a good life. This is why we test for it. And please forgive my frankness -- if the folks who gave you the reports did not explain them clearly, go right back and demand that they do so. Everything depends on your being accurately informed and pro-active.
