Brief Update

Just a brief update.  Emma is still stable and improving slowly.  We have been able to work down on her vent settings some but with all the fluid that she has accumulated around her lungs, it is going to be difficult to go down much further without probably having to have that fluid drained off.  We have been able to remove one of the medications that support her heart function (inotropes), which is really good.  They have been working at removing some of the fluid off her body that has accumulated since she got admitted.  This has been successful thus far which is a big blessing.  She had/has so much excess fluid accumulated.    All in all, Emma is making positive steps forward.  Continue to pray for her and her recovery process.  Also, remember to pray for all the doctors and all the staff here at the hospital as they take amazing care of Emma. 

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

  3. I check on Emma (and Ella) daily, and my son (4) and I pray for you guys everyday. I read the latest updates just a few minutes ago and actually woke my son up to pray for 'the little girl with the broken heart'. He prayed with his whole heart for Jesus to touch her heart and fix it up. I pray for the restoration of Emma's health and spirit, and to keep you guys strong through this trial, and to give you peace that passes all understanding! Our God is greater!
