Well, what a day. I'm back at home and YY and Francesca are settling in for the night in the hospital.
I'm afraid Blogger turned out to be a fairly useless product for live blogging from a Blackberry and I'm a bit disappointed that this entry (done through the Blogger interface) will appear long before the last three or four entries that I emailed to Blogger.
Suffice to say that Francesca was born in good health by Caesarian section. YY eventually was returned from the Operating Room and appears in good health and good spirits, albeit absolutely knackered and with no feeling in her legs.
Thanks for the well wishes received thus far and apologies to anyone who didn't get an email or a text thus far.
