GOOD NEWS!!

Kim just called and said that earlier today, the pulmonologist took Emily off of some of the sedation just to see if she could respond----and SHE DID!! She nodded her head in answer to his questions. He doesn't believe there is any brain damage. Praise the Lord!!
She's begun the dialysis and they think she'll only have to do this one time! Is God not good?!? Her vitals have also been stable.

We praise you, Father! My heart can do nothing but cry out in praise to You. We worship You in the beauty of Your holiness. Thank You for sustaining Emily's life. Thank You for bringing order into her body. We praise You for knitting her together not once, but twice! We praise You because You do all things well. Thank You for the good news tonight. We love you. In Jesus' name, Amen.

Psalm 31:21
Praise be to the LORD, for he showed his wonderful love to me when I was in a besieged city.


Earlier today, I talked to Janis and she said the kids are doing great. Hannah and Noah went to school today and got to be a part of their fall festival activities---which were a great distraction. And Hannah is so gifted that she drew pictures of what she's been through this week, so I honestly believe God will heal her of any trauma. We're still trying to get pictures to you of Sarah. Everyone tells me how precious she is. Janis also told me something that really warmed my heart. Emily's father-in-law hasn't left the hospital since he got there---he just didn't want to leave Emily alone. Thank you, Sam, from the bottom of my heart!!!
Thank you for praying!! We've heard that the New Mexico Baptist Convention that was convened stopped and prayed for Emily. We've heard from so many prayer groups who have added Emily to their list. We're so grateful to each person who is praying. Thank you. Please continue.

Emily,
I'm amazed at what God is doing in your body. And so, so excited!! It was such wonderful news when Kim called to tell me that you had responded to the doctor. I can't wait for you to wake up and start talking to everyone. I know your story is going to go down in medical books. But we know the true source of your healing. I love you, Emily. Get some good rest while you can!

Emily,

We just left you sleeping peacefully at the hospital. You came through your first round of dialysis wonderfully. You look 100%better than you did on Wed. I was so glad to see that. I'm praying for such wonderful rest for you tonight. Again, that the Lord would continue to refresh your body,mind and spirit. You are doing so good...I'm just overwhelmed. I can't wait to get to share with you the story of what God is doing in you and through you..it's amazing! Love you, sweet girl. I'll see you tomorrow!
