Colton Daniel

Friday morning we woke up at 5:45 to get ready for our baby boy's big day. We took care of the animals and got ready to go. We dropped Griz off at Uncle Donnie's where Griz is free to sleep on the furniture and eat junk food. We got to the hospital a half hour earlier than we were supposed to and sat around waiting anxiously for our scheduled C-Section. When the time came Rikki was hauled off to the OR. The nurse came back with a blue jumpsuit for me to wear and escorted me to the OR waiting room. I had to wait till Rikki was all sedated before I was let in. The nurse came out and told me not to be alarmed over the page I am about to hear over the intercom that it was not an emergency. "Respiratory Therapist is needed in C-Section OR STAT." This OR team member was running a little behind schedule I guess. Found out later that Rikki's mom was in the cafeteria when she heard that and panicked. Poor woman. The surgery went great I got to cut the cord. Colton Daniel was born Friday morning at 10:16 weighing 8lbs 5oz and 21 inches long. Momma is doing very well after surgery. Colt came out screaming and kicking full of life. Is this a sign of things to come. Everyone is healthy and doing good.


  1. Congratulations to all! Rikki--that's exactly what my kids did--thus 2 C-sections. I know you will recover well--enjoy the baby boy, and hope that Todd pampers you both during the recovery! Blessings friend. I can't wait to see him myself! Debbie

  2. Hooray, hooray, he's here! So glad I got to see you guys today. Love to you all!!
