The naming Ceremony took place well over a year ago and I finished the Video just in time for it's anniversary earlier in the year.
You can download the video here: Ruben's Naming Ceremony
It is pretty long and a lot of it is in-audible... But you'll like the video messages I have attached to the end. We plan to use this video to embarrass Ruben on his 18th Birthday! :)
It's my first ever real video editing... so be gentle! I used a program called Kino to edit the video stream from the camera. It's a pretty basic, but very easy to use package.

He especially enjoyed the slides, and was mesmorised by all the lights and sounds...
We have totally spoilt him rotten, but we don't care because we are just enjoying having him out of hospital!
I took an unhealthy amount of fair goodies to work in leeds, but nobody seemed to understand the whole hull fair concept... but seeing peoples faces light up like they were kids again really lightened my day.

Ruben doesn't have meningitis!!! It seems that some Meningococcal Bacterium managed to infect the blood sample after it left Ru's body, probably due to poor hand hygiene (hopefully in the lab). However, he was promptly given the anti-biotic for the Meningitis as it took 2 days to confirm the results.
The repeated blood tests however did show a Diplococcus bacterial infection, which CAN lead to Meningitis infections... However, the anti-biotic that had already been administered will have killed this infection.
Ruben is currently happy and healthy at home. The Neutropenia is still a major issue and has not improved.
