Colvin William Caldwell!!! Zoom is BORN!!!
Hey everyone! So Little Zoom was finally born! Zoom turned out to be a 8 lb 12 oz baby boy, he was 21.5 inches long and was officially born at 5:59 PM. Things, as usual, didn't go as planned and due to his 14 inch head after being elongated from both pushing and forceps couldn't come out the right way SOOOO, a emergency c-section was required. Betsy and baby are both 100% fine and we are looking forward to talking with all of you over the coming days!
This year, like last year, I will be riding for Mary Payton's Miracle - My friend Steve Kogos from Trigators informed me that his friend Joe's daughter, Mary Payton, was diagnosed a number of years back with Late Infantile Batten Disease. This is a disease with no cure, however, there are special experimental (and extremely expensive) treatments which have shown some significant signs of success! In order to assist with the costly treatments and research, Mary Payton's Miracle was created to raise money to find a cure, hopefully in time to save little Mary Payton as well as the many others affected by this terrible disease!
