What are the chances?

I won the lottery last night. £25, but a win’s a win.  3 numbers coming up was a 1 in 1133 chance. 


George was Born in the caul – meaning he popped out in the amniotic sac.  That’s a 1 in 80,000 chance and apparently very lucky.

Being born with Down’s Syndrome is a 1 in 1000 dice throw, even with screenings it turns out.

2 in 100 babies with Down’s Syndrome will have Hirschsprung’s Disease (which doctors are 99% sure he has) so the little fella lucked out there.

I guess my point is that everything is a lottery.  Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose.

Statistically, our brave George is one of a kind.
