Emma is doing really well this morning. Her sats and stats remained steady throughout the night and remain steady this morning. The doctors are still unsure about the surgery date. She is puffy again. This is to be expected since she received a little blood this morning and some fluids last night. They have started her on Lasix again to try to get some of the fluid off of her. So, for right now, I have my chubby little chipmunk -cheeked girl back! ;) The surgeons have promised us that they will not do the surgery tomorrow just because it is scheduled. They said if Emma is ready they will go ahead with it, otherwise, they will wait. We are in no big hurry as she is doing really well.
Please keep praying. We know “WHO” brought Emma through this last night. Emma is a fighter, and she has a Heavenly Father who cares for her and is helping her every step of the way. Scott and I are enjoying spending time with her today! It makes us realize how truly blessed we are to have her in our lives!
Specific prayer requests:
1) Pray for her health that she continues to improve. Pray specifically for her lungs and heart, as these structures are very important in a successful Norwood surgery.
2) Pray for the upcoming surgery she is about to have. Pray that it is successful and that she does very well during and after the surgery!
3) Pray for the nurses, doctors, surgeons, etc. that are all going to play a big role in her surgery being a success.
4) Pray for Scott and me as we will indeed be going through some scary moments ahead after the surgery.
