Baby Lucy and Momma Jessica are doing great, but still in the hospital until at least tomorrow. So, I’m clearing the decks, getting back in gear etc. Thanks to everybody for their kind notes, advice etc. You might not be surprised to hear that I haven’t been able to respond to many/any of them, but I am still reading and saving them for Jessica and Lucy to read (though probably not at the same time). Anyway, I might address everything I’ve learned about fatherhood in a column later on, but in general I am not inclined to make my daughter into regular column fodder. I mean, what would my couch and my dog think?
