    What can be done about the missing arm bones? I've never heard of that problem or of the syndrome itself.
    explaining the syndrome the short way....
    Thrombocytopenia-absent radius (TAR) syndrome is a rare genetic disorder that is apparent at birth (congenital). The disorder is characterized by low levels of platelets in the blood (thrombocytopenia), resulting in potentially severe bleeding episodes (hemorrhaging) primarily during infancy. Other characteristic findings include absence (aplasia) of the bone on the thumb side of the forearms (radii) and underdevelopment (hypoplasia) or absence of the bone on the "pinky" side of the forearms (ulnae). Other abnormalities may also be present, such as structural malformations of the heart (congenital heart defects), kidney (renal) defects, and/or mental retardation that may be secondary to bleeding episodes in the skull (intracranial hemorrhages) during infancy. TAR syndrome is inherited as an autosomal recessive trait.

    some children benefit from orthodics ( braces, etc...) and/or surgery. we'll have to wait to see. Lily had her first braces within several wks of birth, we were undecided on surgery..we wanted to see if she really would benefit or if it was more cosmetic. quite a few children have lengthening procedures done.

    thanks! I'm trying to enjoy every day.
    thinking of you and sending the labor fairy your way. I kept shoving her but she'd squeal not yet!...maybe this time she'll go.
