Sam Taylor: We welcomed Wesley Allen Taylor into the world at 4:23 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 26. He was 6 pounds, 11 ounces and he was 19 and 3/4 inches in length. And he was three weeks early! Boy howdy was he a surprise! Unfortunately, because he’s early he’s having a bit of a tough time breathing on his own, so he’s in the nursery in an isolette where they’re giving him 33 percent oxygen (we breathe 21 percent normally) so his O2 levels are in the acceptable range.
DFO: Please join me in congratulating Sam & the lovely Kate on the birth of Wesley.
Kerri Thoreson, via Facebook (last night): After a couple of years on FB, this is the most incredible night. My niece is doing a play by play of her sister’s labor and impending delivery in a Utah hosptial. The baby will be my sister Lynne’s first grandchild and my other two sisters and I are following the progress on FB. Real life, real time. (Update: Great nephew made his arrival, in his own good time. His mommy is doing well and his great aunties are all pooped from the late night, early morning excitment.)
Question: How has cyberspace and the evolving social network enabled you to take part in far-off family events that you never dreamed possible a decade ago?
I can’t top the closing situation/question that Cindy came up with on Facebook this afternoon. Seems she was have an manicure when … well, I’ll let Cindy tell the story: “Drill baby, drill takes on new meaning when your nail tech accidentally drills into the fleshy part of your thumb during a manicure.” Yes, the manicurist drew blood. Again, Cindy: “But my tech happens to be graduating from Nursing School in June. I think she did it on purpose, so she could whip out the first-aid kit. Imagine my dismay when she had NO Disney Princess bandages.” The tale prompted Liz to write that a dentist once accidentally slipped and drilled her cheek. Liz: “Really big ow when it was all over and the novocaine wore off.” (Illustration: SR File Photo)
Question: Have you ever been injured inadvertently by a manicurist, dentist, doctor, or other professional that medical or cosmetic professional?
More Info: By the time they reached the top of Fourth of July Pass, Jo Ann’s contractions were two minutes apart. Adren tried to call 911, but he could not get a signal until he reached the bottom of the pass near Wolf Lodge. Then, with the 911 operator on the line, Adren quickly took the Sherman Avenue Exit, and pulled into a gas station, where they met Jeff Fletcher and other paramedics with the Coeur d’Alene Fire Department. Once inside the ambulance it only took a few minutes for the baby to decide it was time to come out.
Question: Anyone out there have a child who was born in an odd place?
