Thank you to everyone for continued prayers. Emmy’s headaches are much better this week. She is much more comfortable and requiring less medication. Now she is having trouble with stomach pains. She has some pretty uncomfortable stomach cramps and nausea at times. Her appetite has decreased significantly. She is taking in fluids, but has eaten very little the past 4 days, until today. Today she ha…
d some yogurt, pudding, half a cheeseburger, fries and an ice cream cone. This is more than she has eaten in a week. She did still complain of a tummy ache, but really had a great day. She told me that she had a boo boo in her tummy and the doctors needed to take it out so she could feel better. We made it to the beach today, Yeah! It took some convincing, but once she saw that her Aunt Ellen was coming too she was very excited about going. It is the first smile I have seen on her little face in a while. We spent a couple hours at Presque Isle this afternoon at beach 8. It was perfect. We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day. The waves were big and there was a great breeze. Emmy loved the waves in the water. She told me she loved the beach and that she had the best fun. She asked if we could stay there forever and ever. She is just too adorable. We picked up Jesse from daycare and headed to get ice cream. After dinner we had family and good friends stop for a visit. Emmy was so happy to have so many people come to play with her. It was a very busy day and my little angel is fast asleep. I think she will sleep pretty sound tonight. I will post pics from the beach soon. Thank you again to everyone for your continued thoughts, prayers, and support. We are truly blessed.
