I delivered a baby today. Not just any baby - but the baby of a dear friend, resident classmate, and my own doctor. Whenever people choose me to do their OB care, I always feel honored, but when a fellow doctor lets me be a part of that experience, I am even more honored. It's also a little more nerve-wracking because when it's a good friend I just worry more about what could go wrong. The delivery today was wonderful - smooth, uncomplicated, and the baby even had the decency to come during the day. And now I can go on Christmas vacation and not worry about when she's going to go into labor. The little girl was just beautiful. And after I finished my doctorly duties, I could get my camera and just be a friend.
The proud grandparents... we used to go to church with them. Grandma cried. It was precious.
It was a really great day.
