18 hours of labor, one c-section and 4 days in the hospital later, I finally can call myself the proud parent of this handsome young man.
It was a very complicated delivery. After we were in the clear, the head nurse informed my sort-of-mother-in-law that my girlfriend and baby were in a pretty dire situation and the c-section was an emergency measure. Ed Jr was facing chin forward with the umbilical cord completely wrapped around him. My girlfriend had an un-diagnosed condition of fluid retention that was putting so much pressure on her insides that the baby was lodged and hadn't budged an inch in 7 hours. His heart rate was decreasing more and more with each contraction, very scary stuff.
I owe quite a bit of gratitude to the nurse staff. They averted what would have been the worst day of my life and ended up making it the best.
I'd say 2-3 years tops and I'll be uploading his first map to /idgames.
