Ethan was born this week 7lb boy! Everything went great, wife was a trooper and did it all natural without any drugs. She woke me at 330 am on monday and let me know her contractions were about 4 minutes apart... they were actually more like 2 1/2 minutes apart, and the hospital was a good 30 minutes away, lol. It all turned out great and he was born at 6 am that morning.

opening a new clinic right now also so under all sorts of great stress, but my body seems to be handling it pretty well. Presently just on 6mp, and it's done well.

I am getting somewhat excited about trying some fecal transplant techniques when the babies GI system gets a little more established. Need to research a little more, and get some saline from another clinic.
