Well, I knew something was up! The ped says there is definitely something amiss with his neck and arm. And of course its the arm with the boo-boo hand where the IV exploded and he has the scar. She doesnt think that is causing nerve damage or anything, she doesnt think its related.
She said maybe its how he was in the womb, he always tilts his head to the one side and as a newborn, I remember always rolling up something to put next to his head to make it stay straight so its one of those things.
She said nothing severe or anything but he may need a little physical therapy. Of course Ed is ready to sue the NICU insisting its because of the IV issue. Its his right hand, I just hope there is no permanent damage. When the doc put him on his tummy, his arm gets stuck behind him and he cant get it to move. So good thing we found this now and with some help he will be fine. She said he is plenty strong, just needs to learn to move a different way.
She did of course mention size and "maybe because he was so big in the womb he was smushed etc" So make me feel guilty (for being so fat and having GD)why dont ya!!
PS speaking of fat, I have a consult for lap band surgery on Friday. If insurance approves it, I am doing it. Its laprascopic, day stay surgery and can be removed if you get pregnant (LOL). Its not like gastric bypass where they rip apart your intestines and reconnect them.
OK thats my update.
