  • 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?
  • inside his Scion XB wtf? Half million a year, with a pregnant wife and you haul that around in a farking scion?

    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.
  • FTFA: The boy's middle name "Carter" is derived from his being born in a car, his parents said.

    Why not just name him "Carr"?

    ortho residents make an order of magnitude less than that

    still valid point about the scion though

    young doctor paying off years of school, mortgage, a few babies, expenses of life, saving for kids college. and maybe his wife isn't a coont that demands a Mercedes Benz.

    He was conceiving them before it was cool too.
  • Next week: Proctologist bandages himself after getting his ass kicked.

    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.

    To be fair he'll need another car after the mess his wife and newborn left behind

    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.
  • A heartwarming story out of FL on my Fark? Incredible!
  • he did it to avoid insurance issues
  • kiwimoogle84: My uncle was a cardiac surgeon.


    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.
  • He just wanted to make sure the old lady got an extra stich or two.
  • 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.
  • "New member oof the family"

    Oof.
  • I don't remember this episode. I'm assuming you mean the Smith Doctor.
  • Man, doctors are really feeling the pinch of Obamacare.

    My point exactly.
