Right Hand Pictures
This is a picture of Benjamin's right hand prior to surgery. As you can see his thumb is considered to be hypoplastic. Because the thumb is very underdeveloped, they cannot do reconstructive surgery on it. They will be able to do reconstructive surgery on his left hand though.
In this picture you can see how underdeveloped his right thumb bone is compared to his left.
Here are two pictures of his hand directly after surgery. I asked the surgeon to take pictures because I knew it would be possibly 6 weeks before they would remove the cast and we would see his hand.
