Update on Miss Emma

Well last night went well.  She was very stable through the night which is awesome!  Today she has had a pretty big day.  She has had two of her chest tubes taken out and has had one set of pacing wires removed! She is doing very well!  Right now, as I look over at her as I type this, she is resting very very well!  We are truly blessed with such a strong and beautiful little girl!

They are planning on taking her off the ventilator either tomorrow or Monday probably.  Her right lung has two parts that have collapsed again, so please be praying that her lung will open back up like it should be.  They stated that they will not pull her off if her lung looks like this.  They are going to come by in a little while and remove her other set of pacing wires.  This will leave her with some intracardiac lines and one chest tube left!  She is definitely recovering at a very good pace!

Some specific things to pray for:
1)  Pray for her lungs, especially the right lung, that it will open back up and that both of her lungs will function well!
2)  Pray for her heart, that it continues to function great!
3)  Pray for the doctors, nurses, respiratory therapists, etc, that are taking care of Emma.
4)  Pray for Sarah and I, that we remain well and illness free!

God is good, all the time.  And all the time, God is good!

  2. Someday, Scott, you'll look at a photo of YOUR baby kissing HER baby and know exactly how I feel right now. Until then, I'll just say that you have made your Momma extremely proud and happy by being such an awesome Daddy to such a precious, beautiful little girl!

  3. Emma is such a strong little girl, truly amazing. Praise God for all He has done. We will be praying for her lung to open back up and that she will be able to get off the vent. It is so exciting that she has so many tubes and wires what a huge step! Keep staying strong and know that so many prayers are being sent up.

Scott, you are doing an amazing job! Sarah, you are a wonderful mommy but you must take care of yourself so that you can take care of Emma. Get as much rest as you can, and feel better soon.
