Well, after two years, I think it’s time for an update . . . especially since we just had a baby. Eliot 懿辉 Rambow was born on Monday, March 17, 2014, at 8:08 p.m. Both Cathy and the baby are healthy and happy, and we are now home from the hospital after a pretty smooth delivery. (Labor lasted 15 hours; thank God for epidurals.)
Cathy’s parents have come over from China to help us take care of the baby. They are very excited about their first grandchild. For my parents, Eliot is the first grandson and the only grandchild stationed within a 1,000-mile radius of them, so they’re pretty excited, too.
A lot of other things have happened since my last post. Cathy graduated from UT Houston School of Nursing at the end of 2012 and has recently completed her first year as an RN at St. Luke’s Hospital. I finished my MS in applied physics in May of 2013 and am continuing my studies at Rice.
We have a lot to be thankful for, more now than ever.
