“People arrive at the hospital in the morning. The place is packed,” he said. “They must stand in line, find out the cost they need to pay for a pre-operative test or procedure, come to the cashier to pay, stand in line for the next procedure, pay again and finally get an assigned appointment that week for surgery.”

“We started hitting her feet and massaging her chest,” she continued. “We warmed more towels by the fire, wrapped them around the baby and waited. All of a sudden, we heard a loud gasp. The baby started to cry and breathe.”

“I will never forget this.”
