Just before Christmas my latest grandson was born. There were problems with C-Section and he spent a week in neonatal - juandice, floppy, fluid on lungs, etc. Finally released after just over a week. Because of his problems, the hospital took many blood tests to check for genetic problems, including Prader Willi. The jaundice continued for about 6 weeks so the poor little chap had to have urine taken directly from his bladder which involved a huge needle being plunged through his abdomen. Came back all clear. Went to the hospital for a 3 month check with neonatal unit, hopefully to be signed off. All the blood tests had come back clear, but the consultant wouldn't sign him off because, when he's lying down and you go to pull him up by his hands, he doesn't lift his head immediately! The doc said it could just be that he's more interested in something else, especially as he sits up perfectly well and is looking around. They have to go back in 3 months for another check up.
I will be so relieved when we get the all-clear. I don't think there is anything wrong with him. He's a cheerful little chap, very alert. Life is been rather busy with all his hospital appointments that I haven't really had time to post anything recently. Hopefully all change now.
