Nick of time

Home from D.C. at 2330. Home to the house at 0010. Checked clinic box to see when I started tomorrow - saw a message about my OB patient. Opened it. She'd broken her water at 1100.
I called the OB floor. She's here, yes. Is she in labor? She's nine centimeters.

I got there right as she started pushing, caught six-twelve of baby boy, pronounced him perfect.
I love my job.
