On-call Liveblogging: Baby, baby,!

Whew. Four deliveries last night. Little cuties being passed around, placentas bouncing off the walls. A great day! (Well, night/day/night/morning, really.) Even managed to get a couple of hours of sleep. But we were looking a little ragged on postpartum rounds this morning. We're keeping an eye on the board today--right now nobody's in labor.

At this point I'm about 77 hours into my long march of duty and call, with about 30-some hours left to go. I'm heading up to the nursery now.

I'm hoping those placentas were bouncing figuratively.

Fifteen years ago, I watched my son's birth, and the memory still evokes the emotions of the moment. I am visited again by these emotions when friends and family go through the same experience. How wonderful for you to witness that moment in a couple's life when nothing else will ever matter again.

Keep it up Ben. I'm told it only gets better.

When it rains, it pours babies. Congratulations! Take it from me, Mommies always remember the one who got their babes out. And they remember them well.
