Hi everyone! I just wanted to let my pals here know that my son, Travis Chip, was born just over a week ago on Sept. 26.
He is a big boy - 9 pounds, 9.4 ounces at birth. I know a lot of people have had a lot bigger babies, but I'm not that big of a person. As a result, the birth was a little bit difficult, and he now has a condition know as Erbs Palsey. Basically, his right arm was paralyzed. He's starting to move it now though by gripping, and his physical therapy starts this week. We're very optimistic that he will get full use of his arm without any long-term ramifications or any need for surgery. We'd appreciate any prayers on his behalf though.
I'm attempting to attach some photos.
