In brief: Life is relative

Probably the majority of conceptions with this chromosome pattern will terminate early in pregnancy.
Those that are born have a limited lifespan. Approximately 30% die by the end of the first month & 50% by the end of the 2nd. By a year about 10% remain with major medical & developmental problems.
