Big photos below.
Update: Yesterday, in an item below, we shared the story of Caleb Medley, a budding stand-up comic horribly wounded in the Aurora theater shootings. He attended the midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises with his wife, Katie, only days before she was due to deliver their first child, and we're thrilled to report that a baby named Hugo Jackson Medley was born shortly after our post appeared. Here's a look at this beautiful child and his mom.

This photo, and the ones below, were shared on the Support Caleb Medley Facebook page, which serves a slew of purposes, including raising funds for Caleb's treatment and recovery (nearly $200,000 has been pledged to date) and keeping friends, loved ones and just plain folks up to date on the Medley family in the wake of Friday's tragedy.

Here's a note about Hugo's arrival, after a mere 36 hours of labor, and Caleb's condition:

Just an update, Caleb is still in critical condition, but is stable and is showing multiple signs of improvement. Caleb has been to three surgeries so far, and is looking better every day. Katie has had her baby, Hugo, at 0711 this morning, he is 7 lbs 4 oz, 18 ½ inches long, and looks very healthy! Katie took Hugo down to the ICU hours after birth to share a moment with her husband Caleb (who is still in a medically induced coma). Caleb showed signs that he could recognize that Katie and his newborn son were with him in the room. His blood pressure rose, his pulse rose, and he was squeezing Katie's hand harder than he has since he's been in the hospital.

Obviously, Caleb faces a long and uncertain road. But at least he will have Katie and Hugo to accompany him. Here are more photos of the latest Medley.

If the Repiglikkkans hadn't blocked Obama's Universal Health Care, this gut would have insurance ... and would everyone in the U$A.
