Yesterday George was born as 30ml of rain fell around him. Found in a muddy puddle it is amazing he is alive. Born prematurely despite a healthy weight, George’s lungs are filled with fluid and the joints around his ankles have not yet formed properly. To treat this he needs to have all 4 ankles splinted and he will need to be confined for 2 weeks. To leave them as they are currently will lead to problems later. He is also on antibiotics for his lungs. Despite such a difficult start George is bright and drinking amazingly well.
