Baby Born While Colorado Shooting Victim Was In Hospital
When Katie Medley went with husband, Caleb to "The Dark Knight Rises," it was to be their last night out before becoming new parents. Little did they know what would ensue, and while Katie was able to escape the Colorado shooting unharmed, new dad, Caleb was not so lucky.
Katie Medley had their healthy baby boy at the University of Colorado Hospital, while her husband lay in a coma just one floor below her.
They named the baby Hugo Jackson Medley, who entered the world at 7:11 in the morning on Tuesday, weighing 7 lbs. 4 oz. and measuring 18.5 inches. Both baby and mom are fine, according to the hospital spokesman.
Caleb Medley Colorado Shooting VictimCaleb Medley, however, is not doing well, but making small improvements. He has already endured three surgeries since the Colorado shooting and is on a ventilator. Hospital officials report that he is beginning to breathe on his own and is responding to voices by squeezing hands. His heart rate increased when people around his hospital bed spoke of the coming baby. Family friend Michael West has said that he is beginning to show improvement.
Caleb Medley is an aspiring comedian and both he and Katie had been anticipating the premiere for the past year. Unfortunately the couple has no medical insurance, so friends have set up an online donation effort to cover the costs. As of this writing donations have surpassed $100,000.
Here's hoping the new dad continues to improve and that baby Hugo thrives!
