Ellis has arrived! Charlotte was rushed into Lincoln Hospital late yesterday afternoon when her contractions were every five minutes. Unfortunately, the birth did not go well as Ellis was in the wrong position, back to back (not sure what that means). This caused Charlotte an awful lot of pain throughout the night and had to be given painkillers. When Ellis had not made an appearance by the morning, it was decided to operate. At 8 am she was taken into theatre and thankfully Ellis emerged weighing 7lbs 8 ounces. Both are doing fine. When Suraj phoned immediately after the birth he sounded quite exhausted, conclusive evidence that giving birth is tough on men too! Sue and I will travel to Lincoln this afternoon to see them and hopefully, they would have had a chance to recover. It looks like she will be in the hospital for 3-4 days.
