66. “There’s Only Nine”

Fun story, while my wife was having her c-section for our daughter, she overheard one of the nurses say, “there’s only nine,” and my wife thought they were talking about my daughter’s fingers or toes.

So she’s freaking out that our daughter is missing a finger or toe, and I keep assuring her that our daughter was perfect, which she was.

We found out about ten minutes later that the nurse was talking about the surgical tools that were supposed to be accounted for, and one of them was missing.

So my wife got to spend the next two hours in x-ray because they thought they had left a tool inside her and stitched her up. They found the missing tool, not inside my wife, a couple hours later, so that was a relief.
