Last Post of Night- Here's What Happened. We're all exhausted.

So the Dr. came in to our room and was "concerned about Scarlett's reaction to contractions."  Shortly after that Scarlett's HR dropped dramatically low again.  At that point the Dr. said: 'C-section time' and it was pretty quick from start to finish, or at least seems like it was now.  I was able to hold Vickie's hand and I saw Scarlett's birth.  She's SO beautiful.  Vickie hasn't seen much of Scarlett yet but by 3am we should be able to go over to her wing (CICU) and see her.  Being in a different wing than our baby definitely won't be easy.  We have to live in the SDU until they boot us (discharge Mom as a patient), then we will only be able to visit Scarlett in the CICU until her surgery, recovery, and discharge from CHOP.  It's a long road ahead, but we're ready.  We love our baby and are VERY proud parents.  Oh, and it looks like Scarlett has red hair!
