somebody please kill me. i think my wife will need the insurance money.
I am starting a college fund for him just as soon as I have time to sit down and do the paperwork.
Thanks to everyone for your congratulations. The whole thing has been completely overwhelming. Just holding him brings up an emotion that I cannot even begin to describe.
Luckily, he is doing off-the-charts well for his age. The docs had prepared us for the fact that he might have to stay a couple of weeks in the hospital, and that it would not be unusual for him to go on a respirator for a day or two. As it turns out, they are going to let us bring him home tomorrow evening if everything continues as it has been.
I am going to get a web-page up for him in the next week or so. I link some pictures when I get it done.
Thanks again to all.
