    Wow! That was an exciting day for him. I wonder if the doctor he was subbing for did this to him deliberately (knowing all those twins were due during that week)...lol.

    I bet that was a day he will never forget!!!! He also sounds like even with all he did that day he still maintained a great bedside manner and took it all in stride. Kudos to him and his nurses for being there and doing a great job!!!!
