Wrong, oh so wrong. Those babies should have been born in the same year. What was this Dr thinking?

" ... but doctors at Rockford Memorial Hospital scheduled a cesarean section for Friday evening to avoid complications."

Translate: To avoid complications to their schedules in the new year. Cesarean sections are necessary in extremely rare cases and usually are done to fit into the doctor's billing cycle and schedule. Very unhealthy and unnecessary.

Perfectly acceptable from a tax standpoint although it would have been better if both had been born in the waning minutes of 2010. A full year's exemptions for a few minute's existence.

Doctor: "Who gives a crap if they're premature, having them at midnight on New Year's would be cool, right? Ehhh, I'm sure at least one'll survive.

Sorry, but since this was a timed birth it is not as newsworthy as the birth of my twin grandsons in Cincinnati last month; or I should say in November (30) and December (1), one three minutes before midnight and the other four minutes after. Vaginal birth. No c-section; no induced labor; all God and Mother Nature, and a great first time mama and papa.
