Last second announcement: the Bean is coming early

Sarah has a medical condition called placenta previa (google it up if you're interested) which has not resolved itself - so today we finally had to pull the trigger on an early, scheduled c-section to avoid serious potential dangers to both her and the Bean.

Bottom line: the Bean will debut via c-section on Tuesday, April 3rd. I am going to try to finish up the frame in the fixture (Kyle) and get stuff packed/shipped that is at the powdercoater (assuming it's done by the end of the week), and after that ALL BETS ARE OFF ON WORK for a while. We are going to have a baby who is several weeks too early and may need extra help, Sarah is undergoing major surgery, and I will be needed around the hospital (hopefully not for too long) and house 24/7. I anticipate accomplishing basically no work for at least 2 weeks. Email and phone calls may go unanswered, though I will try to keep up with them to the best of my ability.

And yes, there will be lots of baby pictures on the blog. You are hereby forewarned.

Best of luck with everything Walt. All will work out. You will be very tired. The first few months will be very trying. It is totally worth it, you and Sarah will do great.

You two will forget all about the circumstances of the birth once you have a beautiful healthy bean. Oh, unless you are in the operating room and look over the curtain. DON'T LOOK OVER THE CURTAIN!

Hold your line, take care of each other & you'll all come out the other side A-Ok
It's the beginning of a great adventure (w/apoligies + thanks to Lou Reed)

The birth of a child is always a scary/exciting time. Fortunately it'll quickly fade. Congratulations to you and S on your most important creation.

I'm with Eric on this one, don't look over that curtain!
Congrats and family comes first. Bike geeks will always be around, enjoy the beginning of the epic "ride"!
Also, once you get moved and settled you need to get some onesies/toddler T's going. Holden's can't get enough of the smiley with tooth knocked out.

Hey Walt,
Thoughts, prayers, and good wishes headed your way tomorrow... but everyone wants to know, are you registered for baby gifts anywhere?
Fess up and get random stuff from relatives, strangers, and relative strangers!
