Okay, This Tops the Johns Hopkins Surgeon Who Did His Own Appendectomy

A Kentucky midwife helped deliver her own baby via Caesarean section — stunning even her doctors.
Emily Dial, of Lawrenceburg, scrubbed in for the surgery and gave birth Sunday to a baby girl at Frankfort Regional Medical Center, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported.
With medical gloves on over her IV, the certified nurse-midwife reportedly pulled the 7-pound, 15-ounce baby from her abdomen on her own.

Clayton,
There are one or more radio medical services for yachtsmen who have set bones and even done appendectomies on themselves while single handed at sea.

I'll be more amazed if Kentucky Bourbon contributed nothing whatsoever to this event ...
