A new tool for a wide range of folks
Welcome to my new blog that I have created, now that Ii have something write about, my new daughter, Eleanor Jane Brogan, who was born just under 72 hours ago but has seen more than I have seen in my 32 years. You see , Eleanor was born without a significant portion of her intestine (hence the name of the blog after the medical condition which she is dealing with). It looks as though she will be facing many weeks, months or years or treatment for this and as my wife and I accompany her through this, I wanted to use the power of the blog (something that I never understood until yesterday why people use them) to share information and pictures with family, friends and other folks who may find their way to my bit the world. I am finding that as we navigate our way through this, I am also feeling at different times frustrated, sad, happy, loved, loving, angry, jealous and afraid. I am going to do my best to not hold any of this back as I experience it and share some of the ups and owns of the rollercoaster ride with whomever sees fit to spend the time to read this. I am doing this first and foremost for me as an actual diary but feel fine with others reading this, including my grandmother, mother and wife. So here goes nothing.
