72 hours ago...

72 hours ago I was on my way out to look at new cars to purchase. Kia, Hyundai, etc. are all fairly reliable and cheap. I can buy two of them for one Audi Q5 or Q7 ...

Now, it's important to stress that Doha isn't that big and suffers from terrible traffic congestion. That similar to London or Toronto during manic rush hour. Here I haven't figured out what times it happens. Just seems to happen all of the time.

Anyways ... 72 hours ago Lucy called because she was bleeding again. Two weeks ago today she was hospitalized for the same problem. The concern has always been for baby first and Lucy second. After sitting here for 3 days they discharged Lucy for bed rest until November 12 (when Jack would have been born by c-section). Lucy was rushed to the hospital on October 24 and Jack was hatched a few hours later.

It has all happened quite quickly and I'll be honest ... not fully prepared. I had joked that morning that I would go out and buy a big bag of flour to walk around with for the next few days and pretend it was a baby ... heh. Now we have Jack. We're very happy and proud to have him ...



All the updates about Jack can be found on his website: http://jack.dolgy.com/ ... All photos are posted to the Picasa albums I have...

Next post, and this is the exciting one ... what to do in Qatar when you need to get a birth certificate for a newborn!
