This week, we also are scheduled for hand surgery. Braxton has bilateral syndactyly of his pinky and ring finger. The skin is webbed between the fingers, but the doctor is confident it’s a simple snip to correct it. He will be in a splint for about a week and then just in a bandage for the next week. He will need a skin graft on one hand that they will take from the inside of his arm. Poor baby, think it’s gonna be harder on mom and dad than him.
While he is in for surgery, we are supposed to have bloodwork done for Genetics and Endocrinology. Hopefully, this gives us some new information as to whether or not there are any abnormalities in his genes or growth hormones. Gah, so much to keep up with.
