Thanks to everyone for your well-wishes, your visits, calls, gifts, and offers of support. It's truly inspiring to realize the love that friends and family can share. You guys rock.
We've just completed a very exhausting Day One, and Alastair finally began to suckle at about 11pm. Amanda got some drugs and should be fast asleep when I get back to the hospital.
There may be no new posts tomorrow, but really you've already read the magic words that had us all biting our nails with anticipation: mother and child are alive and well. Oh yeah, and dad didn't faint or throw up. :)
