Emily had a good night last night. There was good news from the lab report this morning---things were a bit better, Janis said. Emily still has a fever, but they still don't know why. The 3 hours of dialysis yesterday pulled off more fluids and she seems to be a bit less jaundiced today.
The doctor has ordered an echocardiogram today to check her heart to see why more fluids aren't coming off. So please pray for good results!
Yesterday, when Luke spent time with baby Sarah, he took a picture of her with his cell phone. Then this morning, Luke asked Emily if she'd like to see a picture of Sarah. Emily smiled and nodded "yes." So Luke held the phone as close as he could for her to see it (she doesn't have her glasses on!) and Emily just smiled. Doesn't that bless your heart?
Janis has asked that if you have left dishes at the Panter home that you come by to pick them up, if at all possible. If you are from Emily's CBS group, you can call Hanann and describe your dish and she'll pick it up for you. Thank you so much for doing that---it will help Janis tremendously!
Yesterday was pretty chaotic for Janis. I know I called her at one point and she quickly said, "I've got to go!!..." amidst kids screaming in the background. Abigail seemed to be acting out her frustrations yesterday. But she said things were much calmer today and she "had Abigail back!" Please pray for Janis. I can't imagine how hard it must be caring for 5 children.
And would you pray that Emily would be protected from infections that always seem to circulate in hospitals? Let's just be in agreement that God would protect her from any of those.
THANK YOU for praying! You bless our lives.
