Back Home


Duncan Ram Redheendran was born on December 29, 2003!

This is a major update since we haven't updated the web site since Halloween. We had Thanksgiving and Christmas in the meantime and even bigger events.

Bheeshmar and Xander got sick over Christmas with what we assume is the flu. Tina followed shortly thereafter. She started having contractions on the morning of the 29th of December. The doctor said she was extremely dehydrated and admitted her to the hospital to give her an IV to restore her fluids, which they hoped would stop the labor. It didn't work, and at 7:30 pm Duncan was born by C-section. He was 3 weeks early, but in great shape.
