I'll be a father. It's beginning to dawn on me. It's closer than ever, and somehow, I'm only beginning to realise it.
No, she hasn't arrived yet. We're dangerously close to the induction date, and it's beginning to look like this one is going all the way. My wife has been remarkably brave and dignified about the whole thing, personally, I'd have fallen to pieces. My respect for her has tripled. I had a discussion about childbirth with a colleague at work yesterday, and we both agreed, men can NEVER, EVER handle the childbirth process. We're too rational, too 'get-up-and-go', we would have figured out a way to get the foetus out as soon as it was conceived, and put it in a test tube in some lab, and come back and fetch our kids after 9 months.
Anyway, I will do my best to post on my blog when the event finally happens, but in the meantime, please keep us in your prayers, and you can all PLEASE leave words of encouragement for my wife, she reads the blog and I'm sure she'll be glad to see that there are other people thinking of her.
