Birth of premature twins

Over 17yrs ago my wife was pregnant with twins. They weren't due for nearly two months when she had a placental abruption on a Friday afternoon and was rushed by emergency ambulance from midtown Manhattan to NY-Cornell Hospital on the East River. The senior obstetrician who had been overseeing the pregnancy was out of town and it was a bit disconcerting to see a junior associate step in. It was a very youthful looking Dr. Nelson and she delivered boy-girl twins emergency C-section to pediatric ICU where they bulked up before heading off to 17 very healthy years, thank you very much!
