Default Announcing the arrival of Bobette #2

She was born 30th Jan 2011, so last Sunday, at 5 lbs 5 oz about 6 weeks premature.

Headed to the hospital at 3am, arrived at 3:35am and she was born 3:48am.

She's doing pretty well, but she's been in the NICU since and likely to be there for another couple of weeks.

I might talk about the differing experience from having different insurance with this one compared to our first baby, level of cover, cost and the WTF moments later

haha...yeah, tell me about it

I dropped the missus off at the door, by the time I parked the car, ran up to the delivery room with bobette #1, they were rushing her from the arrival check out room to the delivery room shouting to late for the epi

Got the little one an ice cream and it was all over before she finished, had a quick look at baby before they moved her to to ICU and spent the next couple of hours sorting out the insurance/doctors info and all that other fun paper work
