Sep 1 - Urgent Update

One Step forward... Two steps back...

We are here at the NICU writing this entry.
Forgive my gooder english and spelling errors.

About 4:00am Emmie-Roses tummy began to swell up.
They were worried about an infection causing problems with her belly.

Surgens came in to take a look.

They discovered there is a hole in her intistine.
They placed a drain in her stomach to drain out the fluid and have her on
4 diff heavy duty antibiotics.
They should know more tomorrow if the hole is isolated or if the entire intistine
is gone. If it is just a hole... it can be repaired.

If the entire intistine is gone. There will be nothing more they can do for her.
Quoting the doctors "She can not live without an intistine"

Stephanie and I are camping out in a room here for the night to monitor whats going on.
She is 50/50 right now and we are praying hard that she turns around and this bump in the road can be fixed.

Keep Emmie-Rose in your prayers!

God Bless

Love Chris & Stephanie
