All is well

Again an update on Reuben. I had him at the fracture clinic this week and the doctor saw on the xray that already he's starting to grow new bone to heal the break. He's also gaining more movement in the arm as the healing starts. The doctor said that in a year's time if you were to take an xray again we probably wouldn't be able to see where the break was! So what a relief. He's going to be fine and have a fighting chance with those other "rough boys" as Chloe calls them!:)

Reuben update

These are a few pictures from Christmas at my parents.
Reuben and I joined the crew Christmas morning from the hospital. It was a good day.

Just a little update on Reuben. I had him at emerg monday because when he was born he had gotten stuck with his shoulder under my pelvic bone after his head had been delivered so in order to get him out in a timely fashion the doctor had to reach in and get his right arm out and up over his head to turn him enough to get the other shoulder out. (yeah.. ouch) but during that process his collar bone was broken. I had been noticing his cries seemed out of pain when i moved him certain ways and he had little movement in his right arm compared to his left. I have an appointment at the fracture clinic this week with the specialist to see if anything might be done or if it's just a leave it to heal on it's own process which is what the ER doctors thought. But otherwise he's doing well. He and I are just about in the rythym for nursing. About 2 weeks old is when things start to toughen up during nursing for me and also his night times have been pretty easy going.. i get some solid chunks of sleep. Last night I slept from about 10:30 until 5:30. Nahum didn't even wake up. Nahum will often wake up once or twice a night to either pee or just say " I hug you" or something like that. Cute children i have:)
