Sep 3 - After Surgery

Emmie-Rose went off to Surgery this morning aroun 8:00am
Stephanie and I were exhusted and went off to the room and fell asleep.

A knock at the door around 11:30am...
The surgen came in to talk to us.

Her entire small intistine is completely gone.

Emmie-Rose is in a private room now in nicu room 4.
She is doing great after surgery. We know the infection from her intistine will overtake the rest of her but they are doing everything right now to make her confortable.

Words can not express how Steph and I are feeling right now.

I will post more after we talk with the doctors and see if there is anything we can do as far as transplants etc... She has fought this so far... Mommy & Daddy are not going to give up on you
Emmie-Rose!!!

Lots of love...

Stephanie and Chris

    Don't give up Chris and Stephanie! I found some websites that talk about successful transplants of the small intestine.

    chris, stephanie & family- of course, i can't think of anything good or uplifting to say during this time.. who can? I'm shocked & saddened that things have changed so much over the past few days, and am always thinking about all of you & little emmie-rose. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help out. I'm not sure of my schedule beyond next week yet, but I'll be more then happy to pick up Z from school & keep her occupied if it would be of any help. Don't give up hope yet, the internet is a wonderful source for research- perhaps there are alternatives that the docs are unaware of? Keep fighting baby girl..

    Don't give up on her!!!!! We love you guys and wish I was there with you all. (((Hugs))) I'm so sad and shocked that she has made it this far and now this. There's just got to be something they can do.

    We asked and they have nobody here that knows how to do that. There are only a few hospitals in the country that do this. Doctors are saying its only a matter of time now.
