Baby makes early entry

By Venita Fritz Tribune-Courier General Manager vfritz@tribunecourier.com

CALVERT CITY - Robert Frank Medley was scheduled to arrive into the world today.

But on Monday morning he decided to push that arrival up a little earlier than expected.

Tiffany Riley Medley and her husband Terry were about to leave their house and head toward Paducah's Lourdes Hospital for Robert's birth at around 8 a.m. As Terry put the car in reverse to leave the driveway, Tiffany's water broke and labor pains escalated.

She knew it was going to be impossible to make the 20-minute drive to Paducah.

Terry said he quickly put the car in park and with the help of his father-in-law Joe Frank Riley managed to get Tiffany into a fold-out lawn chair in the driveway.

It was from there that 8-pound, 3-ounce Robert Frank entered the world.

"I haven't delivered a baby before, but I was kind of on automatic," said Terry. "My mother sacrificed a shoe lace that I used to tie the umbilical cord and by that time the ambulances were on the way."

Baby Robert rode on top of Tiffany's stomach to Lourdes.

He and mother were reportedly doing fine.
