It’s been a little while since I last did a blog. As most of you know, I was waiting for my wife Dani to give birth to our first child, who was due on 5th June 2012. She eventually arrived nearly two weeks late on 18th June 2012! However, there were some complications.
Firstly, Dani had to have an episiotomy to help with the birth, as well as the suction cup removal method on the baby’s head. It had been a very long labour and Dani was exhausted, particularly as the gas and air made her quite sick. When baby Olivia arrived she wasn’t breathing and was showing signs of distress, including abnormal brain patterns. She was rushed to the intensive care unit and began to receive treatment. She was then moved to a different hospital where she stayed in intensive care on the neo-natal unit for a week. Click here to see a video of her receiving treatment.
Amazingly, she recovered to 100% perfect health and is now home, safe and happy! No lasting problems at all! But I can honestly say that when they placed a blue, lifeless baby on my wife’s bloodied stomach, it was the single worst moment of my life!
Thankfully it is over now and I can get back to writing and doing art, in between helping out with baby Olivia
