Dun Dun Dunnnnn...

Hell of a cliffhanger, right?

When last we left our plucky hero, his wife had just unexpectedly decided to have a person fall out of her months in advance. Said person was incredibly tiny and incredibly sick.

What could have happened?

Okay, I know it was a dick move not to post some news sooner. From a lot of your messages and the few notes attached to donations, I know you guys are really worried about my little girl.

In my defense, given the circumstances, I think I have a little right to be a dick.

Also, I was a dick beforehand, so this is just the way I roll.

To answer all of your questions, she is doing great. She's healthy and happy and gaining weight.

That last part is a big freaking deal. When she was born, she weighed just under a kilo. And then she started losing weight.


They can tell you that shit is perfectly normal in babies, but I'm not retarded. I know how to do math and not very much minus anything is even freaking less.

Also, in case this happens to anyone else, NICU wards are the scariest freaking places on Earth. Ever. I would gladly run through Silent Hill in a gold thong before I'd come back to this place.

The other night, I was telling Susan that the NICU wasn't so bad. Just then, the doors burst open and they wheeled in a set of twins covered in blood and wrapped in plastic wrap.

Kind of hard to finish a thought after that, let me tell you.

Everything is going well, though. Susan is officially on maternity leave (read: Mommy gets a free vacation and I still have to go to work like a sucker), so she spends pretty much all of her time at the hospital. When she's not taking care of our girl, she's hooked up to various milking apparatuses to provide food for our girl.

This, of course, leaves me to take care of our other daughter.

By myself.

No, I didn't think that was a good idea either.

My daughter now listens to people talk and then says "Cool story, bro."

I've ruined her.

All in all, it's been an insane five weeks around here.

Holy shit. It's only been five weeks...

This is probably going to kill me.

Wow, Dave. Glad to know things are going well, though. Do what you have to do, come back with some stories when you can. We'll still be around.

Good luck with the solo-taking-care-of-the-daughter thing.

So glad to hear everything is working out man!! I'm sure you will do fine with the daughter, or end up passed up behind the couch...either way it works out!

So glad things are alright with the new baby and the wifey. Good job with your daughter, now teach her how to play video games, then GM and bring her to work with you!

Glad to hear all is looking good. I think alot of us have been checking for updates, and understand when we didn't see anything for a bit. Sure hope you slept alot last year....

Good to hear your girl is doing fine!

Glad to hear things are going well. Maybe Susan is hoping your daughter is still young enough for all the damage you do while she's busy with the other little one to be fixable. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Oh whew... SUPER glad to hear your daughters and wife are doing great.

Why run through Silent Hill in a gold thong? That won't attract monsters any faster. What you need is a black-haired 7-year-old orphan girl. Don't worry, it won't be hard to run or anything... given previous tests, 7-year-old black-haired girls disappear before you even get to the town, so you'll have plenty of room to run around without that little girl to slow you down. Oh yeah... that and you need to have a repressed history of being some cruel sick murderer-...

ah wait, i guess goblin smithy is history and is repressed since we never talk about him no more, so i'll consider that trait sufficient then. Now, when in Silent Hill, be sure to look for the little girl in the hospit-...


You know Dave, I don't think Silent Hill is really where you should be going instead. I imagine Alchemilia Hospital has an NICU, and if you thought the NICU here was bad... whew, it'll make you wish you went to raccoon city instead!


Dammit Dave! You always bring out the nerd in me!!!! :)

Awesome news!

At least your eldest didn't say "bra" instead of "bro"

I hate that

According to the FMLA you are allowed to take paternity leave. You might not be able to afford to do it. But they have to allow you to take it.

5 WEEKS? Yeah, felt like forever. Glad to hear the little one is doing fine.

Ha ha! Little.

Very happy to read that all is improving on your end with the new baby. Don't worry, you haven't ruined your little girl - she'll just have that GMDave extra edge in life.

Seriously, blessings on you all and I hope you are on the other side of this far away from the NICU soon. They are scary - but wonderful and such important - places.

Let's be honest, penis size is an important aspect of any man's life whether they want to admit it or not. The market is flooded with products and solutions that claim to have the answer to making your member bigger, but usually these products fail to deliver. Luckily, I happened to come across what might be the "Holy Grail of Penis Enlargement", it's written by this guy named John Collins and it's called the Penis Enlargement Bible.

What I found mind blowing about John's program is that he backs up his claims with actual video proof and testimonials from customers who have used the product. It's said that a picture is worth a thousand words, but I would say most of these videos are worth 3 to 4 inches!

Forget extenders, pills, suction devices and surgery. They are either expensive, too painful or they just don't work. The Penis Enlargement Bible is a proven two step program that combines natural over the counter supplements with a specially designed exercise regime to achieve up to 4" of growth within just a few months.

If you are serious about getting bigger, check out the Penis Enlargement Bible here:
