Emmy’s update for today is a positive one. She woke at 3:45 am for a drink and went back to sleep untill 9am when she woke again. She was pretty alert this morning, not as groggy as she has been the past couple days. She asked for 4 different kinds of beverage, including her dad’s coffee. She also ate half of a jar of apple banana with mixed cereal baby food. While awake, she was pretty restl… ess. She did complain a little of tummy pain, and ended up throwing up what she had eaten in the morning. She was able to continue drinking throughout the day and it all stayed down. She talked today, and I was able to understand most of what she was saying. She is weak and her spoken words are very soft. Listening to her little voice was like music to my ears. The sound was so beautiful. We were all so excited. I knew she was feeling a little better when Jesse came in to see her (annoy her) this morning and she pushed him away and said “stop”. Ah, sibling love. She was awake for about 3 hours before she fell back asleep. She dosed on and off throughout the day. She became extremely drowsy again after taking her medication and has slept most of the evening. She gave us quite a scare Saturday. I am so thankful that we have had the chance to talk with her again. My family is truly blessed.
