Welcome baby!

Today at 1.45pm, we welcomed into the world Max Oscar. He weighed 4kg & measured 51cm.

He’s doing pretty well, but has scrapes and bruises from forceps which struggled to get him out (big head!), and “wet lungs” which caused some concern for a few hours. He’s had a heap of tests and a chest x-ray but the paediatrician is pretty happy with him now. He’s being fed through a nasal tube for the night though, but has been sleeping wonderfully cuddled up to me for hours.

As for me, I’m sore across the incision, and tied to the bed til morning, but otherwise fine. Looking forward to the big kids getting to meet their new baby brother properly tomorrow!

Only day 3??

It’s hard to believe this is only the third day of a very extended break. Wore myself right out yesterday first shopping then shed cleaning. Really wanted to fill the skip up, so was quite ruthless. Found everything I was looking for, chucked a heap of stuff and restored some semblence of order to the frightful mess. Was so sweaty and stuffed by the end that Miss Four and I jumped straight in the pool. Bliss!

Shopping expedition was a semi-success. Bought a bassinet on sale at Target (which I took back today as it was missing it’s wheels!) and took my new watch in to be fixed (clasp buggered after a month) to find I’m going to be without it for a month. Bah. Still, also got kids’ haircuts, my eyebrows, groceries, successful Santa photo and some other bits and pieces. Calling it a win.

Today dropped in to say proper goodbye to daycare, and put in enrolments for later next year. Then doctor appointment (34 weeks tomorrow) and back to Target to return bassinet. Went down to Port Kennedy to go to Baby on a Budget and got bassinet I actually wanted! I think I’m in the *nesting* phase!

Might pop up to Willetton tomorrow to visit Education World for the first time. And need to get spare room organized for parents – have to hide baby things cos mum doesn’t want to know baby gender!

Time to drag kids out of the pool I think 🙂

Further hubby update

Just saw doctor and we’re about to take him home. At least 7-10 days off work, but he’s feeling okay. Hungry and tired mostly! I’m heading back to work for athletics carnival now.

Husband update

He has a hernia. Has been lucky enough to get on an operating list immediately (workers comp doctor rocks!) and we are currently sitting at what must be the poshest hospital inPerth, The Mount, waiting. I brought laptop, iPhone, books and crocheting with me, and may pop down to the shops a bit later too 🙂

Yes, I’m certain he will be fine. It’s going to be a long recovery (for me!) though!!

You never know what you’re gonna get…

So hubby rings yesterday arvo and calmly tells me that a slab of rock slipped off the mine wall the night before and pinned him on the leg. No damage except for muscle strain and grazes from trying to struggle out from under it, going to work tonight. Oh, righto then. Two hours later, another phone call saying they’re flying me back in tomorrow, seems I do have an injury that requires treatment (minor operation). So I’m sitting at the “industrial” airport waiting for him, to take him to the first of what promises to be a few doctor appointments to get him all fixed up.

Later… Didn’t get to post this before. Now sitting in doctor surgery waiting for appointment. Hubby seems okay, but has stiffened up a lot in the two hours or so we’ve been wandering about Cottesloe,
so he’s clearly not as “fine” as he thought he was!

More later.
