Thank you for your prayers — they were answered! When Chrissie took Emily to the ER tonight, Emily was too weak to walk. After being given IV fluids plus IV potassium, Emily’s potassium labs rose from 2.5 to 3.6. Her whole demeanor changed – back came the feisty, spunky little girl that is Emily’s normal self. She instructed both Momma and I that we were all going to put together a puzzle “as a team!” And she again has some plumpness in her arms and legs. And, best of all, we realized as we were walking out of the ER about 12:45 am this morning that this is the first time since Emily started this long journey that instead of being admitted to the hospital from the ER, she walked – well, was carried – out of the ER and got to go home!
Thank you all for your prayers – and for reading this blog so ridiculously late at night. Again, you are our security blanket —
