Please pray

Emma had a cath on tuesday to fix some issues in her heart. She has had a difficulty recovering and has run a high fever and had some swelling. Emma took a turn for the worst yesterday afternoon/evening.  She had to be intubated because of her acidotic blood gases.  The problem that we then had was that none of the traditional ventilators were working so we had to put her on an oscillating vent.  The challenge then was to correct her acidotic blood gases.  It took all through the night and into this morning to see some improvement.  During all of this, her heart took a hit and is not functioning like it should.  Things are very critical right now but Emma is still fighting so we are too! (they have her sedated and paralyzed). Please pray for our princess as she fights this uphill battle.

  5. I am sure you don't remember me as we met only briefly at the Ronald McDonald House several months ago. My 8-year-old son, Anthony, is a cardiac patient at Children's as well. A fellow heart mom gave me the link to your site and I have faithfully followed Emma's journey since then. I am so sorry to hear about this latest trial. You all will remain in my prayers. God is faithful.
