My Grandson

Sankar took me to Meadowlands Hospital and Medical Center early morning yesterday and after a quick breakfast at Subway we reached there at about a quarter to eight. Ananya was lying on her bed in LR 4, all wired up with a channel in situ. The fetal ECG showed the heart rate varying from 125 to 150. We were lucky that her obstretician was soon available. Mrs. Alka Gor examined her and recommended a LUSC immediately.

She was wheeled to the operation room soon enough and we sat in her room in expectation. At 8.40am we heard a baby’s loud cry and after a few moments the nurse showed us a bonny boy. The baby was taken to the nursery and weighed:7lbs. Sankar was sent to the ground floor for the registration of the baby. I waited in LR4 and Ananya was wheeled in at about 9.30am. She appeared rather exhausted and recovering from spinal anaesthesia.

When Sankar came back with the papers we left for Poplar Street allowing Ananya to rest.
