Off-Topic: My Birthday, Baby Pick Smiles In The Womb

By Adam Pick on February 10, 2009

Hi everybody,

I just wanted to say thank you for all the kind emails, phone calls and letters regarding my birthday. As you may know, I turned 37 earlier today. (Actually, I will really turn 37 tonight. I was officially born at 10:35pm.)

After work, Robyn and I are going to celebrate at one of my favorite, local restaurants here in Los Angeles!

 

 

Speaking of birthdays…

Baby Pick is getting closer-and-closer to his birthday. As Robyn’s tummy gets bigger (and cuter), our little boy is really putting on weight. With eight weeks to go, he now weighs over 3 pounds, 8 ounces.

So you know, we had a four dimensional (4D) sonogram last week. We actually saw Baby Pick smile in the womb!!! And, truth be told, we also saw him wee-wee in the womb as well!!!

 

Baby Pick - 29 Weeks

 

Is he cute or what? (I’m guessing all parents would say the same thing, right?)

Keep on tickin!
Adam

Hi Adam,
Thank you for the Boston referrals (via Dr. Roselli) – I had my cardiac cath at Mass General, and it went fine. But I have decided to have the mitral valve repair, etc. with Dr. Lawrence Cohn at Brigham and Womens (suggested by Dr Roselli and several other cardiac surgeons polled by friends in other cities). I am waiting to get a surgery date. It can’t be soon enought, but he seems very busy. Turns out my brother probably needs the same surgery now.
So, thanks a lot. I read all the blogs. I am not really sure how to participate in the other stuff.
And Happy Birthday!!
Terry

Adam,

Happy Birthday! AND WHAT A CUTE LITTLE BOY! I know you and Robin must be exicted.

Terry,

A positive attitude for your upcoming surgery is the way to go! I had my Mitral Valve fixed almost 5 weeks ago and I went into the hospital smiling, laughing w/ staff and left pretty much the same want. AND I”M STILL HAPPY and LAUGHING! The power of a positive attitude, plus having your homework done before hand, I feel are the keys to a speedy and healthy recovery. Good luck to you and your brother.

Hello Adam!

Happy birthday to you! It’s good to be alive and well, I know. May you have many, many more birthdays to celebrate with your growing family!

Congratulations again, on your upcoming fatherhood! Yes he is CUTE. It’s pretty exciting, and fascinating looking at the ultrasound! It can’t compare though, to the day you hold him in your arms, for the first time!

Best regards to you, Robyn and baby ! Kathy

Hello Adam,

Happy birthday and Congratulations and good luck with your new family member soon to join you.

I have a question. Have you heard of Dr. Craig Miller & his team at Stanford Hospital? Also, did you have to cut down or completely stop on drinking before the surgery? How long before?

Thanks,
Kemal

Happy Birthday, Adam! Thanks for keeping us up to date on your life. Gotta tell you, that’s the cutest little sonogram I’ve seen! 🙂

Hi Adam:

Sorry to have missed your birthday, but you have my sincerest wish for a happy and healthy belated birthday and throughout the coming year for you and Mrs. Pick and Baby Pick.

Meant to write earlier. My husband, James, underwent a mitral valve repair last September 22 and he’s doing just great. In fact, he’s skiing in Colorado this week. He was walking 15-20 minutes on day 2; 30 minutes on day 3; discharged on Day 5; and walking 3-4 miles from that day forward. Dr. David Adams, his surgeon at Mt. Sinai here in New York, conducted the surgery and he, along with his staff, were terrific. Can’t say enough good things about him. Dr. Adams said that James’ surgery was “textbook perfect.”

Thank you for your book. It gave us a map as to
what to do and what a comfort. Thank you so very much. There is a place for you in heaven, am sure, and I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

Thank you, again.

P.S. Coincidentally, had a chance to meet Dr. Paul Stelzer while James was recovering and he appears to be a capable, competent, and most pleasant doctor.
