Delivery into the World Day 1

Calen Reed Clopp was born on Feburary 12, 2011 at 8:05pm via cesarean section. He was born prematurely at 26 weeks and 6 days gestation. Holly (his mother) was becoming very illl and their became no other option but to deliver the baby to prevent further complications to mom. He weighed 1 pound and 7 ounces on delivery and measured 11.75" long. During the c-section we were hoping Holly would have the chance to see him but she didn't get that chance as he was quickly taken back to the "resuscitation" room to start stabilizing him. I spent another 20 minutes with Holly prior to them letting me see Calen in the resuscitation room. Holly made it through the c-section very well and was out out recovery very quickly. Mother and baby were doing great at this point.

  1. That's an amazing picture, Tim. I've not met you (I was Holly's preschool teacher), but give Holly my love, and baby Calen and the rest of the family, too!
