Home Again Home Again Jiggity Jig…

Well, on Tuesday we got to come back to the aprtment.  We are so excited to be back in our home away from home.  We pray that we can actually stay here awhile and stay FAR AWAY from the hospital unless we are there fro clinic visits. 

Emma is doing well.  We did have to come home on oxygen due to her x-ray still looking very wet; however, we are hoping that the longer she has to heal the better her x-ray will begin to look and we can slowly wean the oxygen off.  Emma is still on a high dose of diuretics to help pull off excess fluid.  These medications are great, but cause problems in other areas (electrlytes), so we will be monitored closely for the next several weeks in order to make sure that Emma’s body maintains a healthy balance.

Speaking of balance, we are trying to get Emma back to a balanced routine.  We have contacted her home therapists to hopefully start back physical, occupational, and speech therapy soon.  We will also be going to get her helmet adjusted tomorrow to try to get her head reshaping the correct way.

Please pray that Emma can stay healthy and out of the hospital.

Also, Scott and I have made the decision to move to the Dallas area.  This is a big step for Scott, Emma, and I.  Please pray that this will be a smooth and good move for us all!

God is Good!  All the Time!  God is Good!

The following pictures are of the day we came home and the day following with a visit from the Hendricks clan!
