Let me start off by saying that God is so good! He is truly in control and shows us everyday that He is and that He is taking care of our precious little girl! She had a wonderful night last night! It went very smoothly! I really thought that last night neither Sarah nor I would get any sleep, but we both did which was really nice! They say that the first 8-12 hours is usually a rollercoaster; however, she was very stable throughout the night! What a blessing!!! Today they are weaning her off of certain medications. This will help in her overall recovery process. They are also going to give her a little nutrition through TPNs, which is good! They are thinking that they will close her chest tomorrow sometime. All in all, the doctors are very pleased with her progress!!!!! We are truly, truly blessed!
God is good, all the time, and all the time, God is good!
Some specific prayer requests:
1) Pray for her recovery process, that today and the following days will go very smoothly and that she will heal quickly!
2) Pray for Emma’s heart, lungs, brain, and body. Pray that everything will continue to function properly and that she will continue to improve.
3) Pray for the doctors, nurses, and other staff that are tending to Emma. They have been so great to Emma thus far! We are truly blessed to have them!
4) Pray that Sarah and I will continue to remain very strong and have a peace about everything.
A special thanks to everyone for the prayers, thoughts, and wonderful messages that we received for Emma yesterday. It means so much to us to see how many people love her! So, thank you all! Please keep those prayers going! God is answering our prayers!
