Surgery Update #6

Miss Emma is settled in her CVICU bed and is doing well.  She is having small things tweaked here and there to help with her blood pressure, heart function etc., but other than that, tonight's goal is to keep her calm, comfy, and sedated as well as stable.   

Emma's nurse will be very busy tonight making sure everything is working in Emma's favor.  I have sat down to write this several times, but it never fails that something arises while I am trying to update the blog. For instance, while typing this she needed her mouth suctioned which triggered a small arrhythmia.  Then the team came by to round.  Anyways.....

It will be a busy night tweaking meds, checking labs, and monitoring all of her numbers.  

We appreciate your prayers as we move forward in this recovery phase.  

Prayer Requests:
1. Emma's heart rhythm stays normal
2. Her blood pressure is stable
3. That she puts out good urine output 
4. Her heart function stays normal
5. That her body accepts this new circulation.

God is good!  All the Time!  God is good! 



  1. "God is never blind to our tears, never deaf to your prayers, and never silent to your pain." Praying for healing and strength for Emma.
