Cute little guy
A lady came into the clinic in labor Monday just as clinic was ending. Almost all afternoon on Monday we had other after-hour patients in between checking on the lady in labor. It was a first baby, and things progressed slowly. Her labor slowed down overnight, but by morning she still hadn't really progressed so we started her on oxytocin. Things still progressed slowly, and I was getting pretty concerned about baby. Fetal heart tones dropped some, and then I was really concerned. By 4:30 pm Tuesday the baby was finally born and was soon breathing. We were SO grateful once again for God's hand of mercy in a situation that looked pretty bleak.
