  • I had it as a newborn too... growing up people always asked about the scar... honestly, I'm proud of my scar :)
    Don't feel bad for her... feel proud of what she went through at such a young age... teach her to be proud.

  • I just helped with a foster baby who had surgery two months ago for PS. Interesting that your daughter had it, I read it was most common in first born males. I am happy to hear her recovery was complete, I wondered how this baby would do later in life.

  • My nephew had it and had surgery and never had any other problems. Like blessedwiththree said it is most common on boys.
