Gmail and digital pictures allow working parents to collaborate on health remedies
Noran, who proudly shared that she's a first-time parent at 44, uses Gmail and a digital camera to keep in touch with her husband about their baby's health scares:
I'm an emergency room registered nurse, and I work 12-hour shifts on the weekends, with my husband watching our baby. (I look after her during the week, while he is at work.) Since baby care is new to him, he gets nervous whenever there's a health-related problem. Once the cat scratched the baby's face, and another time she developed a sty in her left eye.
Since I'm work and cannot leave, he took a few digital pictures and emailed them to my Gmail account. I was able to review the pics and tell him what to do. This relieved both of us greatly.
