Tuesday Afternoon

Tuesday, August 11th, 2009

I just talked with Gabi on the phone – everything is fine at the hospital and she is sleeping with Veronica. Veronica is nursing just fine.

Everyone is tired—no one got much sleep last night. I need to stay here in Temecula to keep an eye on the kids – children younger than 16 are not allowed in the Labor and Delivery rooms at the hospital, so there will be no family visit there like we had with Aaron. We should all be home by noon on Wednesday.

We know that some of you are close enough to come visit, and we’d like to encourage people to come anytime starting on Thursday. Give us a call or email to arrange a time.

For those of you following us by the web, the next batch of photos will likely be up Wednesday afternoon or evening, showing the whole family (the six of us) getting together for the first time.

While the steussy.com site was being hammered over the past 12 hours (we were linked by a very popular site – slashdot.org, followed by Boing Boing, reddit and others – and received thousands of hits per hour), the system held up pretty well. If it takes you awhile for a page to load, just give it time.

That’s about it. We’ve received lots of well-wishes by email and on Facebook, and would like to thank each and every one of you for them.

This is the last photo I took of Gabi and Veronica before I left this morning.

I’m now home with the three kids (Courtney and Martha took care of them while I was out). Gabi and Veronica will be back home Wednesday morning.
