Second Visit to the Neonatologist
Sweet William is 10 weeks old! We visited the neonatologist again today, Dr M. I am not very fond of him. The first time he tried to fold Willie in half to show me "How floppy these babies are," meaning babies with Down syndrome, pretty much ruined any like I had for him. We got the karyotype results. It's just plain old trisomy 21, but I guess I already knew that from the report that The Beloved Dr S gave me from the amniocentesis. My little dumpling weighs 8 pounds and 4 ounces. He is 20 ½ inches long, and his head is 37 ¼ cm. I just wish his doctor treated him more like a baby than a specimen in a petri dish.
