Graham Joseph Duguay Fowler



in the tenth hour, of the ninth day, of the eighth month, in the seventh year...

by emergency c-section (which was less dramatic than it sounds) three weeks early.

mum is fine. baby is great. dad... needs a drink.

bit in a hurry to get to a car seat clinic then back to hospital (monique will probably be in til monday), i'll post more when we've had a chance to breathe.

(well... really it was the twenty-second hour, but it sounds cooler that way...)

Dear Tom,

Congrad's on you and the misses. Though it is just a bit on the scary side that you are passing on you genetics,which possilby will lead to future disturbed generations of Fowlers.

Congratulations guys! We're right behind you, but it looks like you finished the race a little earlier than expected. Glad to hear everybody's doing well. Cheers!

I've already had the pleasure of telling you this in the real world but I'll add it here just because that's the kind of kooky fellow I am... :-)

Congratulations! He's a very cute child. :-)

Isn't your wife the most impressive woman on the face planet?

Tom- I have had two emergency C-sections-they are always dramatic! You're fun is only beginning. It will be the best thing you have ever done.
I'm very happy for you both.

thanks everyone.

chip: i don't know the next we'll be in toronto, so unless you're coming to our neck of the woods, i'd say you'll be holding him in a year... but given the fowler genes by that point he'll be about 5'6" and at lest 145 lbs. so start lifting those weights.

josh: we've noticed a certain monkeyesqueness. we're checking for blue fur on a daily basis.

weldon: this face planet has indeed been blessed by an impressive lady.

nancy: nice to hear from you. of course it's dramatic. i just didn't want anyone to worry that it was anything other than a very controlled, reasoned event. we knew from about noon that it would likely be a c-section, but all the doctors and nurses handled it in such a good, calm, helpful way that it never became panicked. which is all i'd meant to say.

we got a nifty little monkey,and we couldn't be happier...

although we could be better rested...
