He's a hero for doing a simple procedure (that he has been professionally trained for) that has been performed successfully a hundred billion times in human history?

You were delivering babies before it was cool right?

Did you RTFA? He's a RESIDENT. You don't make mad money until you're several more years in. Besides, consider the student loans. There's nothing wrong with scions anyway. I almost got a TC a few years back, got my VW instead.

Good on this guy. Sometimes it's really hard to keep your head when you're emotionally involved.

Why not just name him "Carr"?

Uh-huh, yeah. I can tell you don't hang around with doctors much.

They're cool, competent professionals till it's a family member involved. Then they turn into crying pussies with an overabundance of thumbs who can't recall which end of the scissors you stick your fingers into.

Exactly this. My uncle was a cardiac surgeon. A SURGEON! He fell to pieces when his son needed stitches during a holiday party once (he sliced his hand pretty badly on a piece of broken glass) He could have easily stitched him up right then and there but was panicking because the kid was screaming and just kept yelling for his wife to go pull the car around front. It was pretty damn hilarious to witness. I'm like, wow you're useless.

Don't those guys usually have someone else cut the patient open and stitch them afterwards?

I'm not sure, but I'm pretty sure they have to know how to, even if they don't all the time. And he must be good because they're pretty loaded these days.

Dr. Timothy Hawkes, an orthopedic resident at Broward Health Medical Center, managed to pull it off anyway early Tuesday morning inside his Scion XB, with his wife. Katelin...

Enough about the conception; how did the delivery go?

Yeah, but in this case his wife did all the work. This wasn't a complicated delivery for him, the woman popped the baby out and he caught it. All things considered he was lucky. It doesn't always go so smooth.

Apparently all doctors are good because they all seem pretty loaded to me these days.

The guy kept his cool. That's the point of the story, not that he was doing a common procedure. I can build a $4000 desktop computer in my sleep, but probably not in a car, when it's screaming at me, and with two children in the back seat.

Testify, brother.

Ante-natal classes don't manage to get that tidbit across very well. Birth is MESSY.

Not bad for an ortho doc. Being a resident he's probably only done a year of general medicine so kudos to him for remembering his O.B. rotation and keeping calm.

I know a doctor who got stuck in traffic and had to deliver his baby on the shoulder of the highway. I found out the next day because it was covered in the local section of the newspaper.

He drives an Alfa Romeo.

I almost delivered one holding on to the back of a couch. Intense pain, I'm working through the contractions. Ex was flying around the house in a state of insanity, packing and loading up the other two kiddos into the car. He forgot me. Seriously, started to back out, then had to run back in the house and pry my hands off of the couch to get me out. I didn't know until the oldest one tattled on him the next day.

When I told my husband to drive me into see my ob-gyn (I thought it might have been the false Braxton-Hicks thingies.) he asked "Why?" At some point, I can't remember exactly when in the timeline now, my husband lifted a baby outfit out of my suitcase and asked "What's this? Who the hell is this for?" I still feel slightly astounded when I recall it.

My wife ruined a perfectly good morning of deer hunting. I had all my camo on and was about to leave when she told me her water burst. Her OB was on vacation and I had to drive her over an hour to another state to have his backup OB deliver the baby. Daughter was facing butt down and had to be delivered emergency c-section. Everything turned out great and I have a wonderful 11 year old. My dad, big time hunter, still busts my balls about getting my wife knocked up knowing the kid would be born during hunting season.

I find it unfathomable that your wifes' doctor let her go into labor with a breech baby. Doesn't he know they can be turned?The easiest way to turn a breech baby is probably via acupuncture. My children have a little friend that was breech until Mommy was sent to the acupuncturist. They inserted needles into the soles of her feet and the baby slowly turned. A week later she gave birth naturally; no C-section required.
