1. Is his mom caring for him like she is for her other babies?

2. Is he nursing well and gaining weight?

3. Do you think you could send me a picture of his leg? The following link walks you through the process:

There may be a slight delay after I receive your answers since I have to type up a response to you. Thanks for your patience. Deb
