    Does anyone know where I can get in touch with one of these people? We have two kittens that need to be nursed...these are the last two from a litter of five. Their mother was bitten by a snake and died soon after giving birth. We have allready lost three and are trying to save the last two. Feeding with a 5cc syringe several times a day.

    I remember a call one night a few years ago. A lady called saying she was driving her neighbor in to have a baby, as her husband was out of town. She was very excited saying her neighbor was about to deliver, and she would be there in a few minutes. So we go out to the ER entrance with a stretcher and a Precip tray.
    In comes a brand new mercedes 560 convertible with 3 police cars in pursuit. She stops in front of us. We look in and her neighbor is crowning. The doctor had to deliver the baby in the front seat of this brand new mercedes with hand tooled leather seats. So while he is clamping and cutting the cord, and we are wrapping up the baby with an APGAR of 9. The placenta pops out onto the floorboard fo the mercedes before we could get the mother out. We got the mother and the baby up to L and D in fine shape for the nurses there to take care of them.
    Then we had to go down and collect the placenta. That mercedes 560 was a mess. So new it still had the sales paperwork on the side of the window.
    Moral of the story is....... If you have a brand new car and your pregnant neighbor needs to go to the hospital call an ambulance for them to get there in.
    Saves the mess you mercedes is tuirned into.
    Also saves you the traffic ticket you get from the police for speeding and reckless driving. They said the lady was driving at excess of 100 MPH.
    I wonder if they named that baby girl Mercedes, it is a pretty name.

    WOW!!! That reminds me of a situation I had not long ago. It was actually the ER nurses that were the funniest part of the whole story. ER called to say that they had a pt delivering in her car at the ambulance entrance and wanted L&D assistance. I ran down there (0.25 miles) and the ER doc was delivering the baby. There were 5 nurses standing around. I walked up and they asked me who I was, I told them I was L&D and asked if they would like any help. They handed me an 8 lb baby boy. We had good resp effort but was a little blue so I took baby in to the infant warmer and let er help mom onto the stretcher. I put baby on the warmer, gave a little blowby and he was screaming, pink apgar of 9. I was about to wrap him up and give him to dad when I hear a lot of noise I turn around to see 2 more ER nurses rushing a pediatric crash cart into the room. They threw open the drawers, started pulling out drugs and asked what size et tube that I needed. I simply asked why? They looked at me like I had just grown horns and said (with a "you are so stupid tone") "To intubate him". I simply said, " Oh, good idea, if I intubate him, maybe he will stop screaming so loud, it is very irritating isn't it?" It was actually great, healthy mom, healthy baby, couldn't have gone better!!!!
