I haven't been blogging for quite some time, and when I left off, I probably seemed a bit down.

Well, I just wanted to let folks know that my wife and our new baby are doing great, and I'm feeling a bit better too. I'm still a bit too busy to get into my regular posting, but things are going well.

Of course, Mom is tired, but healing very well. Baby is healthy and gaining weight at a good rate. He's a very active little guy. Born at 33 weeks weighing 4 pounds and 10 ounces, he was up to 6 pounds and 8 ounces last Monday. His original due date was October 22, and it seems he may reach a healthy weight by then. In the meantime, per doctor's orders, we are being extremely cautious that he is not exposed to any disease. Prayers continue to be appreciated.

Spiritually, I had a great Saint Francis' day yesterday and have managed to continue with my daily prayer routines through all these trials and tribulations, whether feeling any dark nights or not. I think I'm pulling out of it - or at least finding that gratitude is finally prevailing in my prayer over doubts, fears, anxieties, anger, sadness, dryness and so forth.

Baby eats every couple of hours, and needs changed just as often. Big sister is still in diapers too and needs attention. I'm back to work full time when I'm not helping Mom with the kids or the housework. These are the reasons for a lack of posting (and failure to keep up with emails).

Peace to all!
