    My son was born on 9-15-11, and his name is Elijah Nathaniel Sher.

    However, my wife is still in the ICU, recovering from surgery to correct bleeding complications. The surgery was yesterday, and would seem to be successful, and since I didn't get any urgent phone calls while sleeping last night (they wouldn't let me sleep at the hospital), I'm assuming she's still okay, and I will be leaving for the hospital to see her and the baby boy shortly. Thankfully, little Elijah seems to be fine, and he's a very calm and mellow baby, with an "APGAR" of 9-9, which is apparently a super-high rating of his overall health and status.

    Any good vibes and positive thoughts/prayers/meditations for my wife Gretchen would be very much appreciated at this point.

    Congratulations with Elijah Nathaniel Sher, Isaac. I'll ask my gods to keep an eye on Gretchen.


    (They'll probably slap me a third eye, because they're already on the case.)

    Thanks, everyone! Gretchen and baby will be at the hospital for another couple of days, it seems. Gretchen seems to be healing, but they want to make sure she's out of danger before they transfer her out of the ICU. Some of the benchmarks for tomorrow will be her being able to sit up with assistance, and keeping down liquid food like broth and jello. If she can sit up without too much discomfort, we'll be able to put her in a wheelchair so she can see our son face-to-face again in the nursery.

    Elijah is spitting up some of his food, so he's on an IV for nutrients and some light antibiotics, as the doctor's philosophy is "it COULD be a stomach bug, and since he's here with us in the nursery, let's make SURE he's going to be okay." He's not in any danger, though.

    ...NEXTWAVE pajamas, eh? Dude, if I knew where to buy some of those, I'd get some for him, and for MYSELF.
