Just announcing my wife should be giving birth within the next 5 days  :)

A baby girl is heading our way but even girls can be 'programmed' to enjoy model tugs  ;) Just like Hannah (Tango's daughter)

So it is my last few nights of peaceful sleep untill we get a sound machine that keeps us awake all night ! (and its not one from AcTion !!!! )

Regards, Dan.

Good luck, old chap. Don't envy you for the next 25 years--been there, done that. Hope the delivery goes well and mom and daughter are fine. Footski will be happy to put you up for a few days so you can get some sleep. Any cigars for Forum members? ;D ;D ;D

Forget that idea, If I was to go to stay with Barry I would be made to finish off his Craig build then do some photography for him WITHOUT a tripod  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Cheers MTM, I will keep you all updated with the progress.

A quick update ;

My wife is being admitted into hospital tomorrow night to keep an eye on her and we have been told the baby will be with us by Friday  :-X :-X

There are a few complications but nothing to worry about, for me or her (or even you!)

Thanks for all the kind words guys and how I am looking forward to tomorrow night ........... The first one on my own for god knows how many !

Regards, Dan.

...Hi Dan...

I hope all goes well with the launch of your new charge...

What a feeling it is becoming a Father...I was in such a daze that I lost the car in a Multi Storey Car Park whilst out buying presents on the way to Hospital the day after Wee Johnny was born...

...Enjoy the Experience Dan...

...All The Best From Norry & Family...

I can imagine the conversation you will be having with her Dan in a few years......

Can I help please?
Dad, do you need any help?
Why can't I help dad?

 





So the user name has to be Sea Helper.

Hope it all goes without a hitch Dan and send our regards to your good lady.

Sorry for the delay, an update here ;

We were blessed with a beautiful baby girl at 07:53hrs on the 4th June, she weighed in at 5lb 13ozs and we have named her Abigail.

Both baby and mum are doing really well, I'm not sure what all the fuss is about with 'sleepless nights' as the little beauty sleeps right through  :D

Photos to follow soon as other family members have borrowed my camera memory card to download photos.

Kind Regards, Dan.

Heart felt congratulations Dan. Delighted Mum and baby doing well.  :) :) :) :) Now get back to work on the forum....No more slacking will be tolerated!! ;D ;D ;D ;D

As for no memory card......buy a new one......not becoming mean now you are a Dad are you?  :o :o

And thanks to MTM, I am not too sure what type she is, when she is in the bath on her back she has to rapid bow thrusters and two full throttle stern drives, maybe and orange anchor handler  ;D ;D ;D

Thanks again to all, photos to follow at the weekend  :)

Kind Regards, Dan.

You are lucky, Hannah would only wake up once in the night usually around 4am which wasn't too bad as she normally went to sleep around 9pm.

Can't wait to see the photos!!!

I am going to be quiet on the forum for the next week or 2 as our little angel has to go for open heart surgery to fix 2 holes in her little heart, its going and has been very stressful for me and my wife once we found this out, one of the holes should mend itself but the other one is bigger than average so we are heading to a specialist hospital on Sunday and the operation will be on Wednesday.

She is 4 months old today  angel

Will keep you all informed with the progress  :)

Best Wishes, Dan & Mrs Sea.Mariner.

: Re: Soon To Be A New Member (well in a good few years time) !!
: sea.mariner September 25, 2010, 00:48:52
Cheers Barry for the kind words, the specialists class the operation as 'routine' something they do every day but you can imagine what is going through our heads at the moment.

Kind Regards, Dan.

: Re: Soon To Be A New Member (well in a good few years time) !!
: tango September 25, 2010, 02:06:15
Hope everything goes OK Dan with your little angel........
We will be keeping everything crossed, as you say it is a routine operation and the surgeons know what they are doing.......

Dan as a parent this type of surgery is something i havent gone through but any medical surgeries involving kids is a very stressfull time.My oldest daughter now nearly 16 yr had to go through a operation every year for tubes to be inserted in both ear drums to help with the draining of fluid build up behind the drum,this started at  4 yrs old until she was 13 yrs.The most important thing is when the doc tells you its routine and all will be well,I know its hard to believe due to how serious this is :) :) please do believe them.After a few yrs have pasted and she becomes a little devil you will look back at this time now and just laugh and say it was so much easier then ;D ;D.Dan my problem now is hearing "Daddy i need some money for the mall" but i can wait for you to go to the bank on the way to the mall.......Paul

: sea.mariner October 07, 2010, 12:21:11
Firstly, Many thanks for all the pm's and email recieved from the members on the forum  :) :)

To cut a long story short, every thing went so perfect  :) the pre-operation tests were fine, the operation itself (5 hours) went to plan, although it was the longest 5 hours of our lives, and the recovery process came as a shock as per the routine operation, we should have been in the hospital for 2 weeks and due to the great recovery of our little  angel they discharged her on Tuesday  ;)

A 5" scar is all she has and this will disappear within time, a few check-ups to be done over the next few weeks.

Just got to catch up with all the washing now ! I have never seen so many dirty bibs !!

Many Thanks again guys & girls for your support, much appreciated  :)

Best Wishes to all,

Kind Regards, Dan.

ps, Oh yes, also to do is to catch up with the forum !!

I was in Yorkhill with the Wife and  boys on Friday...
Johnny was in for a Dental Check Up before the next part of his treatment...
Sunday Afternoon ended up lovely at Richmond...I was over for a short while...You should have come over anyway Dan...The worse the weather is outside the more Logs & Coal we pile on the Open Fire in the Clubhouse...
And the Kettle never stops boiling...

...Best Regards...Norry...

Cheers TERRY, Footski, MTM & Allan for more kind words  :)

Norry, I took a walk down to the tall ship in the late afternoon on Sunday for a few photos also managed to get a few photos of the seaplane landing on the Clyde, if I knew there was a coal fire and a boiling kettle well I would have been there  :)

A slight upset has happened tonight, I have just got back from RAIGMORE HOSPITAL (Inverness) where Abigail has been admitted for the weekend due to heavy breathing, she is back on the oxygen and a few drugs being given, the doctor thinks she is getting a cold and after surgery she will struggle for a bit but the wife is by her side and hopefully in the morning the situation will have settled down.

Updates will be provided as and when I know  ;)

Regards, Dan.
: Re: Soon To Be A New Member (well in a good few years time) !!
: sea.mariner November 09, 2010, 11:19:49
A further update and to cut along story short, she and my wife was in Raigmore for 16 days and I got a phonecall at 5am last monday to go to the hospital, we nearly lost our little  angel and the doctors said she only had 30 minutes to live so that was a shock.

A team of specialists were flown up from Glasgow to help with her life support and she was flown back down to glasgow and we drove down to follow her, 3 days in intensive care on life-support machine and a second operation to repair a failed valve on her heart, she pulled through this operation just like the last and now we are back home and she is looking just great, gaining weight, lots of smiles and our little trouper has defied all the odds.

Thanks again for the pm's and emails, it is great to know that there are some good friends on the forum  :)

Abigail will be 6 months old a week on Friday so please feel free to send a donation or a bottle of RUM  ;D

Best Wishes & Kind Regards, Dan, Abigail, Toby (the dog) and Mrs Sea.Mariner (the wife !)

A belated update ; Everything is going just fine  :) We have been home now for 3 weeks and she is doing just great  :D

At just over 6 months old, having 2 open heart operations, you would never know what she went through.

She has survived and I can't even build a model in that time  :-X

Thats more than the best Christmas present we could ever ask for  :)

Regards, Dan.

Hi Dan, it must be time for an update. I guess she's doing fine now and is getting close to being captain of her own tug soon. :) :) :)

She is doing just great Dave, piling on the pounds and getting cheekier than ever  :)

I think we will need to build an extension on to the house for all the Christmas Presents that she got  ;D

Here is a photo of her on Christmas Day.

Thanks Dave & Barry, she certainly is keeping us busy, but I am still considering a swap for her for a top class model of an Anchor Handler  :o :o Only joking, I wouldn't change her for anything  :-*

However, the wife is up for sale  ;D ;D ;D ;D

And you think I am kidding  ;) ;)

Regards, Dan.

She is Absolutely Gorgeous, ...

I have taken Wee Harry to the Baby Changing Unit in Asda 3 times now to change him for one that behaves himself but so far no exchange has been made...

She is now on solid food 3 times a day (also milk in between) this is a photo of her having her first 'solid' food (you wouldn't even want to see the first dirty nappy after her food !)

Calling it 'solid' is sometimes a stretch.
