In 19 years of practice, Wisconsin obstetrician Dr. Ken Merkitch had never experienced anything like it. He wasn’t just seeing double, he was seeing octuple.

In one 24-hour period beginning last Friday and ending early Saturday, he delivered four sets of twins and nine babies overall at Gundersen Lutheran Hospital in La Crosse, Wis.
In addition to the twins, Merkitch delivered one other baby for a total of nine on the day. Of the woman who had just one child, he joked, “We referred to her as the lazy mother.”
Busy man uh.:laugh::laugh:
