: HAPPY NEWS......HAPPY NEWS!
: Afternoon all,
: Now for something totally different! WooooooooHooooooooo!
: Last night, here in my lil' ole eastern NC town, we birthed sextuplets! We've never even had quints here. The bad news is though that we lost one last night, hence the immediate delivery of the other five who are all doing superbly (2-3lbs. ea). Yes, I do OB ultrasound, and yes, this has been a big part of my life (believe me, these little buggers have kept me busy) for the last month, and I just gotta tell somebody! The connection to this board... - they did not have (irresponsible) reproductive technology in the 18th century, so this is a "frontier", right? Anyway, big sigh of relief, FIVE HEALTHY BABIES (2 boys, and 3 big girls)! CNN is supposed to be doing a story, but is having "technical difficulties", but you may see something on it anyway. I know, six babies is old news since the McCaughey septuplets, but it's big news here. It's better than a hurricane and flood anyway!!!
: Lastly, I'm headed to Dallas tommorow (business, yuk). Are there any Mohicanites in Dallas? Is that where Emily and Kevin are or was that Houston? I will have some free time on my hands and thought about a rendezvous or something. Anybody know?
: I'm lea...vin' on a jet plane, Hummm Hum, MMMMMmmmmmmmMMMMMmmm.....
I can imagine what a thrill those babies must be for you after following their progress for so long. What an accomplishment! I can't even comprehend what the parents must be facing, though. I thought one at a time was about as much baby as I could handle at any given moment- but FIVE!!!! Are there older children, or is this the Great Learning Experience for the parents?
As to Dallas, She Who Tracks Longue Carabine holds forth here - I think I'm the only Mohicanite who is here. I'll E-mail you my phone number, and if you get it before you fly out, give me a call - we'll see what we can arrange.
