She was born with the cord wrapped around her neck. Her Apgar score was a 1, and that was only by virtue of her heart beating at all (30 beats per minute -- the normal is 120-160).
She was intubated and vigorously rubbed for stimulation, then given oxygen through the tiniest mask you've ever seen.
That little cry she made through the mask as she pinked up was one of the most beautiful things I've ever heard.
I helped my team save a baby on Monday.
Not bad for day 1. Not bad at all.
