Post Op - Day 6 (pic added)

Emerson is on track to be released tomorrow. She still has chest x-rays today and tomorrow and an echocardiogram later today. We will learn how to do "chest poundings" to give her respiratory therapy at home. She is eating more and the oxygen has been turned off. A central line and the oxygen tube will be removed today also. It will be so nice not to have tubes!!! And even better to have her out of the ICU.
Thank you for all your interest in and support of Emerson. We hope all our Seminole County teacher friends are having a happy spring break :)

Way to go Emerson! I am hopeful the tubes will come out and all tests will be free and clear for a tomorrow departure! You are a trooper kid! Mom and Dad too. :)

Emerson you are such a strong little girl, and so are mommy and daddy! I know you will continue to get better everyday, and will go home tomorrow!! When you and Avery get older, you will have to share NICU/ICU stories and the fun lung treatments too! We are thinking about you and mommy & daddy!
