That smile she is giving me in the picture below is one of the things that keeps me going. I miss that smile so much right now. Emma continues to make baby steps in the right direction which is a good thing. She is trying to breathe over the oscillating ventilator which is weird because it breathes like 600 breaths a minute...but that is my little fighter....always working hard to survive. Her swelling is slowly coming down (we have a LONG ways to go, but we have urinated a liter off....5 more to go) yes, Emma had 6 liters of extra fluid on her). Her hands and feet are warming up and I can actually feel pulses...yay! We will get another heart echo today to look at function (please pray it is improved). Thank you all for the prayers and encouragement. I wish I had time to write you all individually and tell you how much it means to me.
