As parents of Trisomy children we are all too familiar with the “standard Trisomy line”, incompatible with life. We know that this, among many other common “truths” about Trisomy are simply “possibilities” and that only time will reveal a child’s path and destiny.
Over the next few weeks we’re going to have a conversation about common “Anomalies” in Trisomy children, including but not limited to, Trisomy 18, Trisomy 13 and Trisomy 9. Things like club feet or rocker bottom feet, clenched fists, cleft palate, cleft lip, short sternum, and low muscle tone, just to name a few.
Today’s topic: Clenched fists
