We don't know what the future will bring, and that is scary. But we look back at all that we have gone through and we see how amazingly strong Emma has been. As I have said to many people before, Emma has taught me more in the time she has been here than I would have ever learned on my own. Lessons about the truly important things in life and the blessings that I would so often overlook. Thanks be to God for watching over her and us through all of this!
A very special thanks to all the doctors, nurses, respiratory therapists, etc. at Childrens for watching over Emma with such care and expertise, over the time we have been there! You are all truly amazing!
So, until we go in for the next surgery, we are here in Dallas, playing with Emma, laughing, having somewhat of a "normal" life. We will try to get on as often as we can and update with pics and videos of Miss Em (Our Precious Princess) and her hilarious things she does and the progress that she is making.
Some prayer requests:
1) Pray for her next surgery. That it is a success and her post op goes very smoothly!
2) Pray for the doctors, nurses, and all the staff at Childrens.
3) Pray for Emma to continue to make progress in her development and to do better each day at home.
4) Pray for Sarah and I to continue have strength for the road ahead.
Thank you all for the prayers, thoughts, and help you have all been! I hope you all know how much of a blessing you have all been to us through all of this!
