I generally try to keep from posting personal stuff on this site, and I will always try to keep my site more sports oriented then some random place for me to start throwing out a bunch of personal items. But I felt because of my extended hiatus, I owed it to my readers to keep them informed. I have not quit writing; I just needed some time away to prepare for the birth of my son.
He joined us on April 8th at 6:47pm and we were very excited to welcome him, but after he was born he had to be moved to nursery before we could really spend any time with him. I was able to walk in there and be close by as the nurses examined him and concluded he would have to go to the NICU. It wasn’t anything life threatening at that time, he just had some trouble breathing, but we were assured that he would be taken very good care of.
The Next day we met with the doctor and he explained to us what had happened, felt sure that our boy would be going home a couple days. Well, A couple days ended up becoming two weeks, not by any fault of the doctors or nurses, they were as great as you can expect them to be. Just some things kept happening and they opted on the side of caution, rather than send him home and have to return.
I am happy to say my son, and maybe future writer for the site, is doing great. It has been some adjustment for us having a baby again, but he is a special part of my life and I look forward to spending every evening with him. Now that we have our routine back and things are seemingly back to normal, or as normal as they can be with two kids. I plan to return to writing very soon. Thank you to those of you who sent thoughts and prayers from the minimal time I actually was on twitter and Facebook through this ordeal.
Also, for the beer lovers that follow my site, I have also started a side project called Kody’s Brew Korner, where I will post some thoughts on beers, beer bars and some general thoughts about stuff around beer. Be sure to check it out and follow me on facebook and twitter.
