I am so happy to be at Baylor Medical with Emily and Luke this weekend. I'm also excited to see Emily's blog! I want to give a HUGE shout-out of thanks to my sister-in-law Becky for all her tireless work putting this blog together. She's had a lot of help from her son David, too, for which we're thankful. Everyone in Quinlan who calls or comes by the house say how thankful they are for the ability to get updates on Emily's condition, current prayer requests, etc.
Emily seemed to be resting better when we saw her at 11:15. Her temperature is still 101 and the elevated white blood cells indicates some level of infection. They are giving her a broad spectrum antibiotic, and are hoping lab results can pinpoint the problem for them.
The dialysis is working well, pulling off large levels of fluid and her blood pressure is handling that fine. As Becky has already posted, her kidneys are producing more today also.
Technology is a wonderful tool, and I'm so thankful for all the emails, comments, cards, phone calls (two from Chilean friends this week!) and, most of all, the constant prayer support for Em and our families. The loving support from God's family gives me strength as I pray for my precious Emily and kiss on her precious children.
My love to all,
