Susan has a baby boy!

Today at 11.45 am, Susan gave birth to a cute baby boy, his weight is 2 kg. It all went well. We brought her yesterday to the hospital, her cousin came with us, to stay with her in the hospital. She was very calm, the only thing what was really irritating was the fact that the people came to stare at her. The nurses were nice, they let us wait in a room till a bed came free in the "private" section. there is not that much privacy, but there is a curtain around your bed. And even then people just come to look behind the curtain, like it is the Zoo. I still feel sad when I see that small girl with her big tummy, laying in the bed. It is just a girl!! And she proved that by asking us to check on Silivia (an other girl in Amecet) to be sure that she would not exchange dolls with her while she was in the hospital. Can you believe it...worrying about a doll while you are in the hospital to get your baby!! Today she was nervous, but Janneke and Petra were allowed to go with her into the theatre where the operation would be done. They also had to put on the operation gear, and were able to see everything well. I went back to Amecet, because other work was going on normally. Later I went back and I held the baby, he is cute, there is a problem with his legs, we shall have to go to the orthopedic doctor with him. But the rest is good. Susan still had pain and lost a bit of blood, but nothing went beyond normal. In the evening the baby was already drinking. They will stay a couple of days longer in the hospital and then they will come for a while to Amecet.
