Happy Birth Day Tylan!

Monday, September 5th, 2011
I was anxious all day long waiting for Rich to call and tell me it was time to take the drive to Flower Mound. Thank goodness I got the call BEFORE rush-hour. As I was driving I could see a line of cars form behind me. I arrived at the hospital to find Ashley already at 9 1/2 cm. The baby was in a little distress so they had to put her on her knees to relieve some of the pressure. The nurses informed her that a C-section might be in order which put Ashley in distress. After about 30 minutes they allowed Ashley to turn over and give a couple of pushes. The baby was doing better but a C-section was still possible. The nurses quickly called the Dr. to let her know that Ashley was ready to go and the baby needed to get out. It only took about 15 minutes for the Dr. to get to the room and to get Ashley prepped to push and deliver her baby. I settled into the background and got as many images as I could from my angle. I think Ashley pushed a total of 7 times before Tylan joined us in the room. As tears fell from my eyes I could see the relief on Ashley’s face. I think Rich was still in shock! The nurses immediately put Tylan on Ashley’s belly and from then on there was nothing but smiles! This was, other than the birth of my own boys, the most AMAZING experience!!! Ashley, you are so strong and probably the ONLY mom that can cut-up and tell jokes inbetween pushes. Thank you so much for one of the best experiences of my life! Congrats and Love!
