Ok, it's dad's turn to blog! Emma has made such an improvement!! As of this morning, she had the EEG scan done of her head at approximately 11:30 a.m. The EEG scans the brain for seizures and possible neurological damage to the brain cells caused by the Meningitis. The test results came back negative, which is awesome!!!!! It has been a true testament to God's amazing power that Emma has made such an amazing recovery, in record time no less.

This does not mean that we are out of the woods by any means, but it definitely means that Emma is well on her way to full recovery. As of 3:30 p.m., Emma was taken off the respirator and was placed on a C-Pap machine. This machine takes place of the respirator, and instead of providing breaths for Emma, it alows Emma to breath on her own. It just provided gentle constant pressure so she has plenty of available oxygen and a little reminder to breath on her own. As of this post she is responding really well. So well in fact that mom was able to hold her again, hence my post!!! If she keeps this up, she will hopefully be off the machine and back to the nasal canula by tomorrow.....hopefully!

We are both so happy and so very thankful for all the prayers that were said and have been said for Emma's speedy recovery. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything everybody has done to help Emma progress as she has.

I posted a little video to show the area where we have been spending all of our time, enjoy!!! More good new to come, stay tuned!
