And the dramas don't end yet...

Baby has overcome his traumatic birth, his blood sugar problems and his jaundice. He went home today. But has to return to hospital on Tuesday to be fitted with a brace for at least six weeks to correct hip dysplasia. His mum said she thought he may have this problem, as she had it in a milder form (it can be hereditary) and she heard/felt his hip clicking in utero. It can be corrected, and they're grateful for all they have, but no parent needs one thing after another like this. On the positive side, mum and dad have said they are doing really well so far and are enjoying their first night together as a family.

Tanys, thanks for the update on the baby and my gosh, this poor little fella has had such a hard time. I certainly hope there are no more surprises for this little family. Please tell them that we wish them well and are praying that their little son recovers nicely and without any further problems.

How amazing, hearing/feeling the baby's hip clicking in utero. After all this, things are surely to seem easier by comparison.

Congrats to the new baby. Nice to bring him home. Well I guess they won't be able to use the teeny tiny baby clothes on this whopper. What a birth and I thought I had it bad with my first - huh - hope mom recovers well.

So glad baby is doing better. It's too bad about the hip dysplasia. I'm thinking of trying to change diapers (nappies:) with that brace. I've heard it's a pain in the neck! I hope things go well for them.
