In brief: Unclear yet

Speak with your medical team on their next rounds and ask the charge nurse to help coordinate a " care conference' with your family and your baby's providers.
Its unclear at this time how this will affect the baby's future development. They will probably call in further specialists to discuss the specific typical outcomes with this particular injury. Hang in there!
