Ashley's Discharge

Ashley ready for discharge

Ashley got discharged on Saturday.  The orders came in around 11am.  Jeremy and I headed over to the hospital to say a final goodbye.  It is hard to accept that we won't be a few steps away from each other.

Jeremy back at the hospital - having some separation anxiety 

when we arrived, I went down to the pharmacy to pick up all Ashley's medication (and grabbed a starbucks!).  Once I got back, we had a little bit of a wait.  The nurses called for transplant, but they were not showing up.  It is hard to believe that a hospital this big shuts down on the weekend.  There was hardly anyone on staff.

When 1 o'clock started rolling around, we started to panic.  Ashley had to receive her next set of medication at 2pm and it was a 45 minute drive to Sanford.  This is the medication she is allergic too and had to be de-sensitized to.  It is also through an IV and the home health agency was already on their way to her house.  If she missed the timing, then she would just have to return to the hospital.

So we took matters into our own hands.  Genevieve got a nurse and a wheelchair.  We loaded everything up and headed downstairs.  It was our version of wheelchair racing!

Ashley was loaded up in her dad’s car and with one final hug, she was off.

We are so glad both Jeremy and Ashley are on the road for a full recovery.  Thank you for all your prayers and good wishes.
