By sharing our story and our experiences with this birth injury we will hopefully educate people. Knowledge is power. Our hope is that you will read this blog, share it with your friends, and they will share with their friends. Then in some small way we have prevented other families from having to go through what we have.

Tylenol with Codeine every 4 hours. Don't touch the wrap or the casts, and bring him back in a month to remove everything. Don't expect to see much improvement on the arm for at least 6 to 8 months. That was it. We filled the prescription for the Tylenol at Walgreens and headed back to the RMH. We'll start the drive home tomorrow.
Everything has a nerve attached now, but they were long nerve grafts and will take a while to grow together. We had hoped that we could have the pediatrician remove the casts and wraps, or maybe have it done at the Peoria Children's Hospital but Dr. Kozin really wants to see him in Philly in a month. Looks like Kiana and I will try to find a cheap flight. Now that we know his arm is down, and not cast in the "statue of liberty" position, we may be able to handle him on a plane.
