Specifics on our diagnosis

We received our follow-up letter that details the diagnosis I referenced in a recent post. I'm posting excerpts here verbatim:

The child has a right hand anomaly with transverse deficiency, symbrachydactlyly with a stable thumb and small finger and nubbins on the index, long and ring finger. She has a strong pinch and stable thumb.

CHEST: She has absence of the clavicular head of the pectoralis major muscle, consistent with Poland's syndrome.

She has a full range of motion of the right arm.

I'll be doing additional posts specifically on the symptoms and the condition itself.
