You can do it, Emmy!!!


This is Emmy before surgery yesterday — happy, laughing; playful.

By all reports, her surgery went beautifully, and we all breathed a nice sigh of relief. She looked amazing right off the operating table.

A few hours later, something happened. She had 2 cardiac arrests and her chest was opened up again by a team of surgeons — right in her recovery room.

She’s back on bypass now.

My friends, I have an incredible amount of faith that she can pull through. She is incredibly feisty. She wants to play with Charlotte, blow bubbles, see her therapists, read books, and snuggle with Elmo. She wants to be sitting on my lap, pulling at my nose and tugging on my curly hair.

Please pray for Emmy to have the strength to pull through this.

You can do it, Emmy!!!!!!!!!!!! Mommy loves you so much. Please feel that love and start that little heart beating again with a nice steady rhythm. Thump, thump, thump, thump…
