We had an unexpected patient today...
I work as a medic for EMS, and today we were hosting a community BBQ. Myself, along with two of my co-workers were on call today, and at one point, I was asked to go to a neighbor's house (another co-worker) to pick up some food she had made for the event. No one was home, so when I went to pick up the food, I decided to check on the horses and the cow too, just because. The horses greeted me as usual, but the cow didn't, which I found odd since she is usually pretty friendly. I found her in the barn, looking distraught and I realized she was about to calve, so I hung around just to make sure she didn't have any trouble (she's young, a miniature, and it's her first).
Unfortunately, she did, or was starting to at least, so I called up a co-worker to come help me. Everything worked out fine, and mama and baby are doing well. It was my first time helping deliver a calf, and I gotta say, he's the cutest patient I've had so far...
