Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin worked briefly Monday, just three days after giving birth to her fifth child.

She also confirmed that her new son, Trig, was born with Down syndrome, said spokeswoman Sharon Leighow.

Leighow said the governor will be working on a limited basis for a while, and hopes to make some public appearances already on her calendar.

Palin gave birth to Trig Paxson Van Palin on Friday morning. He weighed 6 pounds, 2 ounces. Palin and her husband have four other children.
