Baby Day!

Casper Danger Von Manis has arrived.  A sack of screaming flesh that is constantly leaking, 7lbs 5oz, 18 3/4 inches long, and furry.  Lori says it’s called “lanugo” and it’s normal, but gee wiz it looks like back hair.  Our little man.

We went to the hospital around 10AM on May 31 because Lori’s blood pressure scared the doctors and they said it was time to get the baby out.

They gave Lori drugs, which she liked and helped her go to sleep, and then drugs to help with the pain of pushing out a baby.  Once it started it went really quick, probably like 10 minutes of pushing and then there he was, our bundle of joy.

A quick 30 minutes later we’re up in a room where they kept us for a day, to help us get ready to keep this thing alive.  They had to teach us how to feed him, bathe him, clean his tar poops, and then like most babies he had jaundice and had to be put under grow lights.

Now we go home and help him grow and become a functioning human being.  Let’s hope we do an ok job and don’t ruin him in some terrible way.  I mean, I busted my head open a bunch and got more stitches than fingers and toes, and i turned out pretty ko.
