Congratulations Great Granddad Banjobert.
You'll hold him in due course and it will be all the better for it.
When our second grandson was born (our daughter's first child) his 5 month old cousin had been hospitalised with suspected meningitis and as I had visited him before diagnosis I was not allowed to go anywhere near the newborn and it was weeks before I could hold him.
I had to stand in the doorway of the hospital room and view him from afar.
You'll get your hugs in eventually
