I'm a granddad again, now with pic's :-)

Discussion in 'The Pub' started by VTRBob, Jun 12, 2009.

  1. The things your kid's put you through :? :LOL:

    Cassie my youngest @20 was flown to Brisbane Womens Hosp from Hervey bay about 3 weeks ago, she was going into labor at 27 weeks and Hervey bay is not set up for Prem babys that early.

    A few drugs settled everything down, but Cass became a resident a Hosp due to the fact she lost her last baby at almost the same gestation last year.

    Tuesday night, she stopped feeling any movement from Bub's, but the heartbeat was still a healthy fluctuating 160 / 180bpm, that changed yesterday to a not so good 140 and steady.

    After a lot of discussion, the doctors decided that it was time to bring bub's into the world.

    So at 10.30pm Elle arrived via C section :)

    3 pound 6 [ 10 weeks prem ]
    She needed CPR and stopped breathing 3 times before she stabilized, but is now sleeping peacefully.

    Mum is also doing well, with a temp drain and on a Morphine drip for the next few hrs :)

  2. Congrats, Bob.

    We're expecting our second grandchild soon, ourselves. So far, all looks fine.

    It must be damned nerve wracking to have to go through what you guys did. Hopefully, bub and mother will be fine.

    Give them both a big hug from Netrider :).

    Um Ibast , I haven't slept with a grandmother yet , she drove up yesterday to be there :) But she had her birthday last Tues, and I did mention to her before that I don't think I have 'slept' with a ?? old grandmother before, and promptly got told :twisted: :LOL:
