Ashley Rae's Adventure to Come Home

Ashley come into this world on April 1st at 11:53pm, weighting 7lb 5oz and 19 inches long. Very quick labor roughly 2 hours and all nature not even an a shot of Tylenol. Because Samantha is beta strep+ a 48 hour of blood test needed to be done on Ashley. After about 40 hrs had passed we found out that they messed up the blood test and Ashley was going to have to stay an additional 48 hours. The only problem was that Samantha had to be discharged from the hospital and Ashley had to stay. So they came and took her from us and took her to the NICU, where she would spend the remainder of her 48 hour stay. The good thing was that we were able to go in and see her almost anytime we wanted. Another good thing was that she was OK, and we were finally able to take Ashley home to meet her new family after spending nearly 5 days in the hospital. Now the real adventure begins!!!
