Miraculous baby girl Alice

Our eldest daughter Vanessa gave birth to a daughter about 8 am on Thursday morning within 10 minutes of being induced. The baby is doing fine,feeding very well and Vanessa is okay but feeling shaky and nauseas from the effect of her rushed caesarian surgery. The baby had a main artery located in such a position that this was inevitable it would be severed once the membrane broke.

By another stroke of good fortune the operating theatre was in the very last stages of preparation for another caesarian operation so they operated immediately.

The series of events are all somewhat miraculous.

If she had been at home and not decided to be induced the baby would have died. If her Doctor had not carried out the inducement and the theatre was not in the final stages of preparation at that precise time for a caesarian operation, the baby would have died.

Even so the baby had lost 70% of its blood at birth.

Tests have revealed no side effects; the pediatrician is delighted at her quick recovery hence she is known as the miracle baby in the Hospital where she is staying.

I had two stat sections myself, and we all made it through both times. A story like this makes me positively shaky all over again. I'm SO glad everyone is okay, and congratulations!

If I'm calculating the time zones correctly, it's Christmas down under and past time for me to go to bed.

Merry Christmas Lindsay. Thank you for your many kindnesses and for giving me new online friends with you and Rachael.

I have a t.v. channel called Classic Arts and they showing a clip from Hansel and Gretel - When At Night I Go to Sleep - beautiful and making me sleepy finally. Good night.
