I'm still in "recovery mode". It'll probably take a while to get back to feeling 100%. But, I think I'm heading towards the right direction. And yeah, bub's doing well too. She needs to gain a bit more weight and such, but we'll get there...
But yeah, we're happy and generally in good health. Thanks so much to all who sent in their well wishes. I really, really appreciate it all.
Being a second time mum takes a bit of getting used to. Things seem familiar and different at the same time. But, I'm enjoying it. And, loving (and freaking out at?!) the idea of having a daughter. Since I already have a son, I sort of have an idea about raising boys. But, a girl? It will certainly be interesting to learn what it's going to be like. Now, I've got my very own pigeon pair. 🙂
Anyway, I know that most women need a few months off after giving birth. The thing about running your own business, though, is that there's a bit more on the line. So yeah, even though it's only been a little over a week since I got out of surgery, I'm slowly getting back to work. Not complaining, though. The great thing about working for a quasi-virtual company is that the work is generally flexible. Other than the fact that I'm missing out on another b5 team meeting in Toronto (agh - I will meet you guys soon), I'm at least able to continue doing work from where I am, without being restricted to a specific time schedule.
In any case, if I owe any emails or messages to anyone, please give me some time to get back to you. If you need a response urgently, feel free to re-send your email and mark it urgent.
