Our second grandson arrived! Gabriel, 6lbs 7oz, delivered to our daughter Jackie during a long and difficult c-section. He was breech, legs first, and the placenta was anterior. That was complicated enough, but then some of Jackie's vital organs got twisted and torn so they had to stop tugging on Gabriel while they saved Jackie's life.

She's in recovery now and they're still looking after her and Gabriel wonderfully.

This doesn't get said enough in our country, especially when the government works so hard behind the scenes to sell it off to their friends, but:

NHS! NHS! NHS!

Thanks again, everyone! I've cuddled him for you all.

Mum and baby are home now and preparing to settle into real life. Jackie got hardly any sleep in hospital so her husband Ash has a steep learning curve ahead while she crashes and starts to recover, but we're here on hand and willing to help too.

Gabriel is gorgeous!

First of all, my prayers and faith that your daughter's total recovery. Second, congratulations, Grandpa!

You know, we talk about how we would all be so happy and lucky and our lives fulfilled if we published.

Then along comes an event such as this to put it all in perspective. Being their for your child as she brings a new life into the world; holding that infant in your arms and knowing you have a new duty to fulfill.

We live on in our children, we are blessed with their presence.

This is the treasure of life. Enjoy.


Life without honor is life led in vain;


Rem tene; verba sequentur (Grasp the subject; the words will come)
