11: Collett was born May 23, 1982 after a 12 hour labor. Raeann & Kelly were in the Labor Room when they heard running foot steps down the hall and they wondered what the emergency was. Two seconds later the nurses rushed in to their room. Apparently, Collett was having some fetal distress and her heart beat wasn't registering on the monitors when her mom was laying on her side. Collett also had a complication of having a bowl movement while still in the womb. Extra medical people from Primary Children's Hospital were there to care for her immediately after her birth. All went very well and Collett came into the world a very healthy little girl.
