Default Pikeys new little one

Greetings all, I hope that you are all well and had a lovely summer?
Just an update for you, particularly as I know so many of you so well?
Jessie gave birth to our son on Saturday, he was due to arrive on the first of Jan??? Yes, wow 3 months premature and just 890g so 1.96lb. We were very lucky, I managed to get Jessie to the hospital without a minute to spare, she arrived and he was out, surrounded by about 8 staff in the delivery room. What a moment and I think I may have been in shock for the last 3 days. He is in intensive care and is being looked after brilliantly. He had the ventilator turned off yesterday and is now breathing by himself for the moment. He has had a small blood transfusion too, which is normal.
We do not have a name yet so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
One thing I'm please about is they sell a pink wrist band that raises money for the ward, I've got one on and it's bright pink and really suits me, I'll get one for Jimmy too of course.

I'll keep you updated and look forward to seeing you soon with some of the new brilliant tracks from the bands album. Hookah.

Have a lovely week.
Pikey x x
