Post Op - Day 5 (pic added)

Emerson continues to improve and almost looks like her old self (albeit with a big scar down her chest). Her oxygen saturation levels are awesome; she is being weaned off oxygen today. It also means that the lymphatic problem has not happened. YIPPEE! She had a little problem with vomiting her feedings yesterday, but with more careful feedings, she is doing fine. In preparation for going home, her lasix is being given by mouth now instead of through an IV line. We are probably going home early in the week, assuming chest x-rays and Monday's echocardiogram are good. Happy Palm Sunday!

It's great to read that Emerson will be going home early in the week. We're thinking of you all of the time and we're still praying for a speedy recovery. Can't wait to see more cute pictures of Emerson doing the things she loves. Love, Court & Ty

Great News on her recovery. We have a gift for her let us know when and where to bring it.

She and you all are in our prayers.
