The ambulance was called when the pains became stronger and the ambulance officers suggested that they take her to hospital because New years eve is always busy for them, so off she went to Denistone House - Ryde Eastwood Hospital, not far from the city of Sydney.. and was welcomed by Dr. Keller and Sister Richmond who eagerly told her to try to hold off giving birth until midnight so that she would have the first baby born in 1958..... there was one other woman in a hospital not far away who was in labour as well. As 1958 rolled in, there was a flurry of activity.. 'come on, push she was told'.. (I can just imagine how impressed she was with this)... but like all babies, I came when I was ready... 5 hours later... yes, at 5am on January 1st, 1958, I came into the world (again). And the other woman? She gave birth to a baby boy a 4:57am - 3 mins earlier than my mum!!! beaten by a male. ha!
TOMORROW, this little girl turns 50!!
