Greetings again everyone,
Well it has been a while, but as I'm sure you can all understand, things have been very hectic. The good news is that after many, many ups and downs, hernia operations and last minute set-backs, Luke is finally home!!
We have had the little fella back for a couple of weeks now and it is all going very well. He is feeding well, sleeping and doing everything we could hope for. In fact he is now triple his birth weight!!
I hope any ohter dad's out there feeling the HELP! attack can take comfort from hearing all of this. It was certainly very difficult and there were times it could have gone either way, but in the end we have a healthy baby boy at home and couldn't be happier. Feel free to contact me if you find yourself in this situation, or post on this board. The advice and understanding of everyone on here was a great help during the difficult times.
Take care everyone.
David, Cherie & Luke
