Three Happy Moments From January 1st, 1980
I was born
- •My mother had been pregnant for 42 weeksShe was in a a foreign country and had not felt her baby move lately. She worried that she may have lost the pregnancy but she didn't want to tell anyone, because she was on a work trip at the time.
- •Then on January 1st, 1980 she felt her baby move for the first time and realized she needed a c-section now!!My mother also never went into labor with me, not even one contraction.
- •My mother travelled enormous distances from the small village in the Middle East where she was had just been posted the largest city with a hospital.Miraculously she found an English speaking obstetrician, who was Harvard trained no less. Within minutes she went under and soon after a very sickly baby was in my mother's arms.
