Baby Emma

Emma Faye looking like her Nana!

Today Baby Emma is 5 months old. She also had a very serious surgery. When the doctor went in to operate he found her liver to be very inflamed. This is due to her chronic lung disease. Unfortunately he knicked her liver so she had to have a blood transfusion during the surgery and the surgeon was not able to do her Fundoplication as well as he had hoped. However they were able to get the feeding tube put in so that is a blessing. Please pray for little Emma as she heals from this surgery. Pray that what part of the Fundoplication that the surgeon was able to do will hold and be sufficient to prevent her reflux. Also pray that her lungs heal so that her liver size will decrease. God is in ulitimate control and my family has placed Emma in His hands where we know she is safest. In that we take constant comfort for His ways are so much greater than our ways.

"The Lord bless you and keep you,
the Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you;
the Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace."

Numbers 6:24-26
