Fionn's a day old, and he passed his first test! A hearing test!
Poll: Does he look more like:
a) A Borg from Star Trek
b) A Cyberman from Dr. Who
Also, apparently people need a few hints about how to pronounce the cyber baby's name. It's easy. It's "Fyun". One syllable. The "i" works like the "j" in Fjord, except throw it into "Fun".
And if that fails, you can call him "Finn".
Finally, no offense to anyone, but please don't call us through the hospital phone number. It was a mistake for me to send that contact info out in my email. We love all the support from you guys (thanks so much!), but we want to keep that line clear for doctors and nurses to get to us.
Our cell phones work just fine in the room, try us on them.; if we don't answer it's because we have a queue of nurses or a crying baby or we're feeding or we're otherwise preoccupied. As Arvind said to me today: "It's a hospital. It's not a place to rest." So more likely, we'll start calling people again when we get back on our feet in another day or two. I have literally been Sinead's arms and feet for most of the past two days. But she's now up and marching around the room since after dinner tonight, so we've come a looooong way since yesterday morning.
