    Condo & Ning add to the Family

    Well what an adventure.

    At 10:30am yesterday while operating the dozer in the pit I get a phone call that Ning had had some contractions and had gone to hospital. Mum said they told her to go home but they would probably be back in the afternoon.

    I called my supervisor and told him I had to leave. Got a lift back to the Mac camp at Dysart, packed my bags and got a lift to Mackay 2.5 hours away, arrived about 3pm. While on the way I managed to book a flight to Brisbane for 5:40pm. Flight was delayed until 6:30 and should have landed in Brisbane at 7:50 but due to busy air traffic we circled for about 20mins. We landed at 8:10pm where I was picked up by my brother to be taken to Gold Coast Hospital.

    All would have been good but a semi rolled in the south bound lanes and slowed 4 lanes to a crawl. Eventually got through and came across road works in the southbound lane at logan filtering 4 lanes into 1. We got through finally and put the pedal to the metal.

    Mum and dad kept ringing to ask where we were and then saying things like the "The water has broken" and "they can see the head" and each time I was a little closer.

    My brother dropped me at the front door and I raced up to the 3rd floor. Was quickly guided to the delivery room and Charlotte had just been placed on Nings chest. I missed the delivery by 2 mins after all that! (Probably a good thing when I think about what I saw when I walked into the room).

    Anyway both Mother and Daughter are doing well and here are a few photo's

    Congratulations Condo.
    Ning and Charlotte both look fit and well. Ning looks particularly bright and happy considering what she's just been through.

    Yeah Spot all went well, can't wait to have them both home tomorrow. We think the doctors will let them come home as there has been no problems and they are both doing fine. Ning was great, No gas, epidural or pain killers which Im told makes for a happy baby.

    Midwifes and nurses couldn't believe how well she went. Mum was with her the whole time and cut the cord.

    Yeah cheers mate, Tell joy to give Ning a call tomorrow after about 8:30am

    I'll SMS the address through to your mobile.

    Yes it was quite a trip and everything went against me but I believe I arrived just in time. I wasn't going to leave until the next morning as I thought she wouldn't have it until the next day. Luckily I left when I did.

    Thanks Sydney, the funny thing is Ning was like that the whole way through her pregnancy, she didn't complain or winge once, she worked at the restaurant up until 8 months. An when I got home last night she had cleaned the whole house including lifting a heavy colour laser printer into the cupboard at chest height which would weigh 30kg. She is an amazing girl.
