I am an Australian palaeontologist living in Johannesburg, South Africa. I am one of the lucky few who were able to turn their childhood passion into a career - so now I get paid to dig up and study dinosaurs. Oh, I also have to teach, but that's ok.
Remember I mentioned a medical emergency the week before last? That was our pregnancy, which was not progressing well. So bad infact that the doctors had decided that to continue it full term would have endangered both the baby and her mother. So this morning, Anwen Jordan Yates was born by C-section. Despite being just over seven weeks premature she weighed 2.5 kg and is doing well in ICU.
