Super Z in all his glory! The resemblance is striking, isn't it?

Polands Syndrome

So for the first 3 1/2 years of Super Z's life, I had no idea that there was a problem. That is how observant I am. One day Randy, Super Z and Princess H are in Natchez visiting my family while I am working and I get a call from my Sis. She says, "What is wrong with Super Z's chest?" I told her nothing one thing led to another. It turns out that he has Poland's Syndrome, which basically means he is missing his pec and a few other muscles on the right side of his chest. It doesn't seem to bother him at all. I guess he is probably left handed because of it, but so far that is the only effect I see. I feel bad sometimes that I never noticed it. I worry sometimes that as he get bigger he will worry about it. I hope he never lets it effect his self esteem. He is awesome...he is Super Z.
