It's a girl!

Johanna Marie-Louise Freitag Coombes

Our baby daughter arrived on 20th March 2010 - nine weeks early.

She  had to undergo a surgical intervention as her foodpipe did not join up with her stomach and there was a connection between the foodpipe and the windpipe. In medical terms it's called Tracheo-Oeophageal-Fistula with Oesophagal Atresia.

She has recovered from surgery and everything else is fine with her. She is amazingly strong and  has done brilliantly. She is beautiful and we cannot wait to take her home. She probably needs to stay in hospital until around her due date, the 23rd May.
