“I’m a rockstar!”
Izzie Stevens, MD (Katherine Heigl, Grey’s Anatomy) said this after she saved a patient by drilling burr holes on his skull. My mother is not Izzie Stevens, but she definitely rocks. On September 17, 2007 she helped my sister deliver a baby.
My sister thought she was just having regular stomach pains when in fact she was about to give birth. My brother-in-law called and went to pick up the midwife but the baby was just too excited to come out. When I saw the baby’s crown, I quickly washed my hands but I was just too nervous to ease her out. Nanay, on the other hand, was the calmest, most reliable person. She did it. If that did not rock, then I do not know what does 🙂
Ashley Lane just turned one year old this week. Since she is too young to learn Otanjoubi omedetou gozaimasu or zhu ni shengri kuaile, I am paying homage to the rockstar who remains my rock all these years.
