The unfortunate parents

A wife goes into labour and as soon as the baby is born, he is whisked away to intensive care.

The following day, the parents are allowed to visit the baby, but beforehand, the doctor sits them down and prepares them that their baby would not look like most other babies on the ward. The parents say that it doesn't matter, no matter what, they'll love their baby unconditionally.

They make their way down to the ward and see a bonny baby boy all wired up..... I'm sorry says the doctor, that's not you baby, it's a little bit worse than that.

So they make their way to the next crib, in it is a baby with no arms, "oh our poor baby" says the mum, "he'll never be able to have a proper cuddle, but we'll still love him......" I'm sorry says the doctor, that's not your baby, it's a little bit worse than that.

The husband and wife look at each other as they make their way to the next crib. In it lies a baby with no arms and no legs, "Oh my" says the dad, "not only will he not be able to have cuddles, but I wont be able to teach him to play football, but we'll still love him......" I'm sorry says the doctor, that's not your baby, it's a little bit worse than that.

The husband and wife, now with tears in their eyes move down to the next crib, in it lies just a head, no torso, no limbs, "oh no" cries the mum, "tell me that isn't our baby".... "No" says the doctor, "that isn't your baby....... I'm afraid it's a little worse than that" "Worse????" cries the mum, "what could be worse than that?"

As they make their way to the next crib, there lies an ear, "Is, is that our baby?" asks the father in despair. "Yes" says the doctor, "that's your baby, but I'm afraid it's a little bit worse than that" "Worse" says the dad, "what on earth can be worse than having just an ear as our first born baby?" "Well," says the doctor..... "I'm afraid he's deaf"
