Please welcome Reuben Elliot, born on the 3rd of February 2007, in about 2 hours flat, at nearly 35 weeks, and weighing a jolly good 5lb1oz. I'm home now, and he's not, which isn't fun, but it's only so he can have a course of anti-biotics, and he will be home by the weekend. He's feeding well - he pulled the tube feeder out you can see in the pictures all by himself, and was quite determined to take more by bottle than they normally offer premie babies, so he's off to a flying start. My mobility has improved, and more significantly from my perspective, my pain is much, much less and I can take the right sort of medication now.
Thankyou for all you prayers, support, and e-mails. I will get back to you all in the next few days, but right now, I'm going to spend an evening in the company of my very proud and relieved husband!
