Well we got some news today that Emma's left lung is still not really doing well. It seemed she had responded nicely to the steroids they were giving her but now it looks like it is no longer working. The lung has not re-collapsed, a huge praise!!, but it does appear to have some air filled pockets all over. This is not a good thing because if these pockets are already filled wtih air then this means no gas exchange- no oxygen going in and no carbon dioxide coming out. Dr Ortiz spoke with me about it today and said they are going to try a stronger steroid- kind of a last ditch effort for the lung. I asked what is next if this doesn't work- he said to get on our knees and pray- which I know many of you are already doing- as am I. He said we can stay intubated and on the breathing machine and see how she does... please pray for a miracle that when they see her chest xray in the am these air filled pockets will be gone!!!!!!
7"Ask and it will be given to you,
Seek and you will find,
Knock and the door will be open to you.
8For everyone who asks receives,
He who seeks finds,
and to him who knocks the door will be opened.
9Which of you, if his son asks for bread will give him a stone?
10Or if he asks for a fish will give him a snake?
11IF YOU, then, though you are evil, know how to give GOOD GIFTS to your children,
HOW MUCH MORE will your FATHER in heaven give good gifts to those who ask HIM!"
Matt. 7:7-11
Many of you don't know this, but this passage was the passage for me when I was asking GOD for a child. And now it is my passage for my child. Please keep Emma in your prayers.

We are praying for Emma especially hard this evening so that tomorrow morning will be a better day and her chest x-ray will come out with no air pockets. We love you all, and will check in with you tomorrow morning. Love you.

Lord Jesus, we come to You with faith and thankfulness for this beautiful baby girl you have blessed this family with. We ask that you direct the decisions and hands of every doctor, nurse and lab personnel that comes into this little one's path. We ask, God, that you surround her with your angels. We ask that you grant her parents with the peace that passes ALL understanding...give them supernatural strength to make it day by day. Lord You are God of all and we worship and praise you your NAME. Thank you!
