Buen retén Abuela!

My coworker Martha is a Grandma again and she will never forget the birth of this grandbaby. See, she had to deliver him herself in the back seat of her Tahoe. ¡oh mi Dios!
I haven't heard the whole story from her yet, but was told that they got lost on the way to hospital and the baby wasn't waiting so she pulled over and called 911. They told her to give Andrea a pillow and she's told them all she had was her sweater. They tell her to put that under Andrea's head. Done. So then they ask her if she has any towels and she says "no, I'm in my car". They tell her she needs something to catch the baby in, so she took her sweater back and used it to catch the baby. Oh poor Martha, she must have been beside herself. But great job Abuela!
