A few weeks ago Lori was very busy with the cholera house. She was taking a short break for lunch. There was a lady that had walked several hours to arrive at the clinic. She was in labor once she arrived. We checked her and felt she had some time before I needed to call Lori to come. We moved her into a different room. She made no signs of pain or labor at all. Her facial expression did not change, she did not yell, she did not say anything. I was standing there and out comes the head. I yelled for someone to call Lori. I am serious she did not yell and change her expression at all. No pushing or anything. I grab some gloves and out she came. I was holding her when Lori arrived a few minutes later. Fast delivery.
I asked her if anyone was with her. She said her husband was outside with two of their kids. She had traveled down the steep mountains paths to help bring the kids to the clinic. I went to go find papa and give him the news. He was a little shocked. I asked where the two kids were so they could meet their new baby sister. They were sitting waiting to see the nurse. Both girls were severely malnourished. They needed up being admitted into the RC that day.
Proverbs 3:21-23 (NIV)
21 My son, do not let wisdom and understanding out of your sight,
preserve sound judgment and discretion;
22 they will be life for you,
an ornament to grace your neck.
23 Then you will go on your way in safety,
and your foot will not stumble.
