There are two big incidents that happened this year, 2009.
The first one is my pregnancy, which was planned but came as a nice
The second one is William's gallbladder surgery. It was a key hole surgery,
but the four punctures on his tummy and a big cut just below his tummy
button looked pretty painful to even look at. Something was apparently
inserted through his belly button, which I'll spare you with the details
(to be honest, I don't know what was done down there, but we don't want
to know, do we?).
Anyhow, I'm going to become a full-time Mum from the end of
September onwards. Gosh, how am going to do it? Just hope that so-called
"mother instinct" kicks in when I see my baby.
Our baby has got a name: Sachi Jerika Lucas. Sachi comes from a Japanese
word, meaning bliss and happiness. Jerika is a made-up name created by
William's eldest daughter Albany, and it is based on William's parents' names .
At the moment, I'm working on my PhD thesis that I'm determined to finish
before Sachi arrives. People call their PhD thesis as their babies.
Well, in my case, I feel I'm having a hard labour already!
