    Thanks Marti,

    He is great. Forget how calming it is to hold a little one. Best therapy that I can think of.

    Congratu;ations upon you recent Great Aunt-hood status. I just told my cousin (She is younger than my by 3 years) that she is now a great, great aunt (sort of a half-generation skip from her Dad being born closer to my mom's age, but is my grandmother's brother).

    Have a great week.

    Tom

    WHEN GOD MADE NURSES

    When the Lord made Nurses...
    He was in his sixth day of overtime when an angel appeared and said " You're doing alot of fiddling around on this one."
    And the Lord said, " Have you read the specs on this order? "

    " A Nurse has to be able to help an injured person, breathe life into a dying person, give comfort to a family that has lost their only child, and not wrinkle their uniform.

    They have to be able to lift 3 times their own weight, work 12 to 16 hours straight without missing a detail, and console a grieving mother as they are doing CPR on a baby they know will never breathe again...

    They have to be in top mental condition at all times, running on too-little sleep, black coffee and half-eaten meals. And they have to have six pairs of hands. "

    The Angel shook her head slowly and said, " six pairs of hands..no way"

    "It's not the hands that are causing me the problems," said the Lord, "It's the two pairs of eyes a Nurse has to have." "That's on the standard model?" asked the angel.

    The Lord nodded. " One pair that does quick glances while making note of any physical changes, and another pair of eyes that can look reassuringly at a bleeding patient and say,"You'll be all right, Ma'am." when they know it isn't so."

    "Lord," said the angel, touching his sleeve, "rest and work on this tomorrow."

    "I can't," said the Lord, "I already have a model that can talk to a 250 pound grieving family member whose child has been hit by a drunk driver...who, by the way, is in the next room uninjured..and also be able to feed a family of five on a Nurse's paycheck."

    The angel circled the model of the Nurse very slowly. "Can it think?" she asked.

    "You bet," said the Lord,"It can tell you the symptoms of 100 illnesses; recite drug calculations in its' sleep; intubate, defibrillate, medicate and continue CPR non-stop until help arrives...and still keep its' sense of humor.

    This Nurse also has phenomenal personal control. They can deal with a multi-victim trauma, coax a frightened elderly person to unlock thier door, comfort a murder victim's family and then read in the daily paper how nurses are insensitive and uncaring and are only doing a job."
    Finally, the angel bent over and ran her finger across the cheek of the nurse. " There's a leak." she pronounced. "I told you that you were trying to put too much into this model."
    "That's not a leak," said the Lord, "It's a tear."
    "What is the tear for?" asked the angel.
    "It's for bottled-up emotions, for patients they've tried in vain to save, for commitment to that hope that they will make a difference in a person's chance to survive, for life"
    "You're a genius" said the angel.
    The Lord looked somber...." I didn't put it there" He said.

    Great news. Christian John Godfrey (my new grandson) was born this morning at 6:07 am, vaginally, with the help of an epidural. The L&D nurse could have been better at the time of delivery (much, much better), but the nurses afterward made up for a lot. He was 20.5 inches and 7 lbs 13 oz.

    (We are friends with director of the place [Nurse-Midwife], so that will not happen to anyone else.)

    He is adorable. Quiet. Only cried when taken from our warm, cuddly arms to have a bath. My son was horsing around with him (the 32 year old bachelor uncle) and Christian suddenly had a cute little smile and he ripped a loud one and filled his diaper.

    My wife and I are trying to catch-up with sleep the rest of today. Tomorrow, we have friends coming over to help clean up tomorrow, so that my daughter and family do not have to stay in the motorhome in the backyard (that's not too bad, 34' Winnebago).

    Will attach pictures when I get everything transferred.

    Thank you for your well wishes and prayers.

    Tom
