I don't feel like art –
last night our darling new grandson, Oscar, was still born
our own 9/11 tragedy
UPDATED 8th October, 2008
we received the autopsy results during this week and had the news on Thursday that the attending doctor got it wrong, that little Oscar is infact baby Madelyn. Apparently gender misdiagnosis with pre-term babies is a common thing (we are now told) it’s easy mistake to make with preterm babies as the genital nodes can be either swollen for a girl (and appear like small male appendages) or recessed for a boy and so not be obvious to give the appearance that baby is a girl.
