G'day clan! Here we go.
Born 11 weeks premature at just 1.47kg, here is our little Daniel at one, two and three weeks old, having a quick break off all the breathing tubes attached to his face. Sorry the first one was taken through thick perspex, so slightly fuzzy.
Still in intensive care, he's now nearly four weeks old and doing pretty well. He's on full feeds, putting on weight and has been off the breathing apparatus for over ten days now. A good lookin' little bloke to boot!
It's been nearly 22 years since I was a dad the first time and I can tell you that this time around, it is a totally different experience.
He's just passed his third week and moving up in the bays at ICU. He had a bit of a rough trot last Saturday and again earlier this week, but seems fine today. It's still a very delicate time yet, so he won't be home for a few weeks.
I can't wait to get him out bush with the wildlife and rugged country, but first things first I suppose.
