Cheers. I'm feeling a bit more philosophical about out now I've spent the evening playing with her and having a laugh and all.

Niece's son born yesterday was 10 weeks early, waters broke at 24 weeks, she managed to hang on to him for another six weeks. He's 3lbs and in ICU. Fingers crossed he'll be fine but some things don't show up for years. Life is truly a bitch sometimes.

That is early and small, but these days they are much more succesful with premies. Keep a good thought.

Let's hope he's a little fighter and gives it his all. Fingers crossed for the wee man

30 weeks is well within the range for a successful preemie birth. I worked with a girl who was born at 26 weeks and is now in her 30s, so there's every chance the little one will be just fine.

We're all pulling for you, Eb. I'm writing a benefit song as we speak. I think Bono will be on board but Sting is still hesitant at the moment.

Ah but what Bono doesn't know is that I am using a team of highly underpaid and badly treated third world children to write out the score. Once he finds that out he'll explode.
