Meet & Greet

New Baby Day

1

Fritzi (Friederike) is here! ‘New’ isn’t quite right, she’s now a week old. Her mum and her were in the hospital for a week because Fritzi was premature and the doctors had to check on both of them for this time. My wife was in the hospital for a week prior to the emergency cesarean and suffered terribly, it was horrible to stand by helplessly.

So it was an anxious time but now the ladies are certified healthy and I’m over the moon to be home with a recovering wife and a tiny, healthy red-haired daughter.

As a German, free healthcare is kind of a given but my American wife kept a mental tally on how much debt we would have amassed in the States, and we’d be ruined by now. We’re forever indebted to the NHS and Birmingham Women’s Hospital for keeping them both healthy and safe.

This is great news. Congratulations to everybody involved! Give Fritzi a few weeks before you turn her into Rock'nRoll and get her the 1st tattoo, Dad. ;)

All the best.
