waiting for almost 3 hours, Doctor Aziz finally came in at 11 pm
and administered the medication. Throughout the night Clare's contractions
and the baby's heartbeat were closely monitored. By 8 am the next
day, there was still no sign of the baby.
At 9 am another dose was administered and the waterbag was manually
punctured, not 2 hours later Ali arrived! Monday 11:08 am, 11.12.2000,
we became proud parents of a healthy baby boy, the waiting is over
... our parents are now gramps! It's the most overwhelming feeling
ever ... seeing him screaming as he appeared and at the same moment
finally realising the gravity of parenthood for the first time.
Friends and family were immediately notified. Limbs counted, grandsparents
reassurred! We ourselves have become the proudest parents.
