When it rains, it pours!
Worked Sunday, busy, busy day. The night and wee morning was no better.
At 1:07AM I delivered a baby that was very, very sick, her Mother had an infection of unknown origin.
Totally gut wrenching.
When I left work yesterday, the baby was still critical. The parents heartbroken, I was a mess.
Emotionally exhausted, I drove the hour home and cried all the way. This is when I don't like my job.
I had to come back to work this morning and I am thrilled to report that the baby is way better and expected to make a full recovery. She was delivered in time to treat the infection already raging in her tiny body while she was still in her Mom.
I spent time with them this afternoon and cried tears of joy. Tears because she came in when she did. Tears because I kept her. Tears because she went fairly fast. Tears because the baby is better. Tears of relief and joy!
This is when I love my job.
