    After some scary moments for both mother, father, and family, Ian Christopher Fitzgerald was born at 1:23 P.M. today (Friday). He was a month premature and came into the world via emergency C-section at about 5 pounds (give or take). After a few hours in neo-natal ICU, he was taken off the ventilator and is doing just fine, as is his mama, who is now resting. His dad was so happy and relieved that everything turned out okay that he managed to not be terribly offended when the three other members of Java Men (www.javamen.com) laughed at him and said "no problem at all" when asked if they could get through tonight's gig without his services, which he had previously thought to be irreplaceable. :rolleyes: :D

    Papa Fitz will be absent (or at least very scarce) from the board for the next couple of days. All potential trolls, plankspankers, and flame warriors should contemplate the possibility of dealing with the formidably pithy and always enigmatic DONOSAUR before posting.

    Peace, love, and MECONIUM to all, and to all a good night. :cool:

    Thanks. I think Monica's holding your cigar for you - but I gotta say that after some of the **** I witnessed today, you may want to think twice before smoking that sucker....

    Very big Congratulations Chris!

    May I add, I've seen a C-section performed. My thoughts are with your lady. That's one tough cookie.
