unheard of

| | Comments (4)

I just came off of a 24 hour plus labor so I am a little bit spacy. I heard from family that Emma has been 'promoted' out of NICU into the Special Care unit - she is doing that well right now. I am told that it is basically 'unheard of' for a gastro baby to spend so little time in NICU.....The real downside is that the stepdown unit isn't as family friendly as the NICU - not the people but the architecture makes it more difficult. And it is likely that Emma will bounce back and forth between NICU and Special care.

She will be getting an MRI in order for the neuro folks to decide the best course of action regarding her shunt. For the MRI, she will need to be sedated and that might mean some time back in the NICU - or maybe not. We are still in a waiting and holding pattern.

All the prayers have really been effective. They are all appreciated.


Wow, that is amazing! I have been waiting for the neuro news ... but nothing to report yet, huh? That picture below (Jess and Emma) is soooo precious.

She is a precious little girl. I am praying for her and hope that her parents are doing well too. Although they have high hopes for Emma, it's got to be one of the most trying things anyone could experience.

Continuing to pray...
The pics are lovely...
(Yes, my Embot loved the name...she thinks Emily is OK but she wishes she had been an Emma. I'm betting that my Jane Austen fan, Martha, will be the daughter to give us an Emma! :) )

Please send Jess and Emma my love. We were pretty good friends in high school. Ive been holding my breath for the last few days regarding Emma's birth, surgeries and Jess's well being. My love, heart and prayers are with her, Emma and her amazing family.
