Emily is Talking!

Luke & Janis traded places last night.  So Luke is with the children and Janis is at the hospital with Emily.  Janis called just now with some great news---Emily is talking!  Of course, she still has the trach, but has a cap over it, so she can talk.  They have the T-bar over the trach which blows air across it which also makes Emily have to work harder to breathe more on her own.  But she's doing that well this morning.  Emily was also showing Janis the leg exercises the physical therapist had given her to do--and she was doing those well!
But PLEASE don't let up on your praying for Emily!!  It may be that when we get good news we go into celebration mode and quit praying.  You know the roller coaster ride this has been---so please pray that Emily has a wonderful day ALL DAY today!

Psalm 118:24
"This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it."

Lord I thank you for the healing you have done in Emily. God I praise you for fulfilling our petitions with love and grace. Lord there is still a journey before Emily, I pray you would give her strength and continue to bless her body with restoration. Be with her entire family as they continue down this walk with you. In Jesus' name, Amen!!!

I am so excited. I've been telling Deven about how God is working to make you better and he gets excited. We miss you and can't wait till you are well enough for us to see you, which I just know God is going to allow to happen before we know it. We love you.

I'm so proud of you. You are working so hard. I know it won't be long before you're reunited w/ your family. We're praying for that to be sooner than you think!
Love you!
