Elderly Woman Without Uterus Gives Birth!
It's not every day that you see a baby's head protruding from a 70-something year old woman's vagina.
Especially if this elderly woman has already had her uterus removed.
I had been caring for this lady for two days and was cleaning her up after a trip to the commode. I stooped over to get a good view of her rear-end to make sure it was really clean and.......
I jumped a few inches when I saw what looked to be a large baby's head crowning at her vagina. It was light pink and had a few tiny blood vessels visible under the surface of the skin. At least there was no hair on it, whew.
I touched it gingerly, and it was firm, but there was no skull bone underneath.
Thank the Lord His Son was not coming as a Babe to a Grandmother this time!
It turns out that this was a part of the woman's bladder protruding through her vagina, as illustrated in the picture above.
In fact, her bladder was hanging even lower than in the illustration: it was suspended between her legs.
As women age, the ligaments the hold the bladder in place loosen and wear-out, allowing the bladder to drop. This can cause bladder infections, retained urine and impaired sexual function.
This prolapsed bladder sure gave me a shock!
