Emma Kate's heart is looking amazing! Praise God for this. Her x-rays are clear and her lungs sound great! She has gotten a little more fussy, which is to be expected as Glenn babies are said to have awful headaches for a few weeks after surgery. We would have been sent home yesterday if it weren't for one issue.
Emma Kate is very congested in her head. This congestion is making it hard for her to eat and breathe at the same time. When it builds up, she gags and throws up her formula. To reduce her swallowing as much mucus, we have decided to let her be fed through her ng tube. This has helped her keep down her formula, but the mucus still gags her and makes it difficult for her to breathe.
So please pray specifically for Emma Kate's congestion to clear. Please pray that the irritation in her throat will go away and she will be able to eat on her own. And please pray that Emma Kate will get better rest with this healing. And please praise God for the healing that we are seeing in Emma Kate. She is a miracle.
So happy the morning of surgery
Daddy and Emma Kate
