11/16 - PM Update

Today was a difficult day b/c Emily was in pain. This has been going on for the past two days, or so, and it was very difficult to watch. She would fall asleep and then wake up suddenly with a cringe on her face, gap-mouthed. We are used to solving her discomfort problems by understanding the tone of her cry, but with the vent tube in her airway she cannot make a sound... this makes it very tiring to try and figure out why she is silently screaming. I hope she is simply tired of being in the hospital.

Diana spent some time with Annabelle today - Annabelle was SOOOO happy to spend some alone time with her mommy!!

Tomorrow we are having a Bronch Scope done to see if there is anymore that can be cleared from Emily's right lung b/c it is not cooperating. The sooner we can get her going on her own, the sooner she will be happier. I did manage to procure a pacifier and extra cushion for her bedding today, so maybe that will make her feel more "at home."

We continue to be provided for in many ways. Every day we get to experience the best side of everyone we know as you show your care and concern for us. You know who you are, so THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! :) You are all such a blessing. Please allow our situation to be a blessing to you as well -- it's perspective that we all need to add richness to our lives, so let our "suffering" and struggle in its fullness add that richness to your life, and may it be a blessing to you in your own struggles -- after all, is suffering only for ourselves??

Just like SO many others, you all are on my mind (and therefore in my prayers) all during the day and night. This morning my devotions were such a comfort and blessing to me and, of course, my thoughts were on you all...Hebrews 7:25 "Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, BECAUSE HE ALWAYS LIVES TO INTERCEDE FOR THEM." How precious is that? Jesus is praying for you all too!
