Dr. Travis’ Adventures in Babysitting
Ashley and her husband, Andy, are the proud parents of 14-month-old quadruplets Samantha, Braelynn, Wyatt and Rilie. Married for five years, Ashley and Andy had struggled to conceive and decided to try fertility drugs, ultimately resulting in a quadruplet pregnancy.

"My husband almost passed out," Ashley says, laughing, recalling the day they got the news of their babies.

However, the surprises didn’t end there. While she was pregnant, Ashley learned that she had thyroid cancer and would need surgery, as the cancer was progressing quickly due to the pregnancy hormones. After delivering four healthy babies, Ashley underwent surgery to remove 49 lymph nodes and her thyroid.

Now, fully recovered, Ashley is busy with the children while Andy is away on active duty. "It's a lot more difficult when it's just me here," she says.

ER physician Dr. Travis Stork visits the family and offers to babysit, while Ashley indulges in a luxurious spa day. Watch as Dr. Travis learns just how hard it is to keep track of four adventurous tykes.
