It's been an interesting few of months. At the end of December last year I told you about our New Being - our first kid...Well now things have really changed.
This note catches up a lot of time... NB is going to have club feet (feet turned inwards at the ankles) and maybe some affect to his hands. This was discovered during the routine ultrasound checks that everyone goes through.
Needless to say, this was a great shock. We didn't really know how bad things might be (this could have been bad enough to end the pregnancy) or if this was relatively contained and truthful. A horrible place for a 5 to be in as well - I had no knowledge of what was going on, no ability to really find out (though we've been through a battery of tests over the last several months. I was able to access reasonable information off of the web quickly and was rapidly able to become more informed on this specific condition than our GP (Not to put him down, he has been great) besides, I had a mission and a library to work in...
As of now NB remains on schedule for arrival next month, the room is painted, all of his stuff bought (or ordered) and S and I are much more comfortable with the prospect of a little one with casts on both feet and splints on his writs.
Oh and yes, NB is a boy - you wouldn't believe how many people ask you what it is.
