Emily's Medical fund/Family fund
Emily is facing months of Hospitalization and a life time of surgeries. She is in the Chapel Hill Hospital in Winston-Salem. Her Grandmother Belinda Was severly burned on both arms trying to save her granddaughter. Please Let help this Family.
For starters I have to say it has been AWESOME being home!!! She has finally settled in and seems pretty comfortable! She has been sleeping all night long, getting plenty of rest!
We now have her OT and PT in the same place and I have to say God definitely led us here! Both her PT and OT have experience with burns. She takes to them so well and I have thanked God continuously for placing us here! We are working on getting approval for 3 times a week for each. I also am planning on moving her speech to the same place as well. The speaking valve, which we had such issues with before her neck release, is now being tolerated the WHOLE DAY!!!!! Praise the LORD!!! It has been SO amazing hearing her babbles, her coos, her little laugh (which is still a little hoarse), & even her cries and her yelling at me often lol!! She's very bossy! ☺️ She seems to be swallowing ok, but we still need to work extra hard on the eating.
I also have to report that yesterday we had an odd discovery. Since we have been home I have smelt a funny smell coming from Emily's face...I finally pinpointed it to her nose. When we took her to the doctor Tuesday for her checkup with her Ped doc, I had him look at her maybe for some bacteria or thrush or something. He said everything looked ok in her throat and her nose, but he smelt it too. She hadn't had any fevers so we just needed to watch closely. Yesterday when I got up and came down stairs I picked her up and it was even stronger, so I told Kiera (her nurse) we gotta figure this out because it's driving me crazy and I know something is wrong. So being the smart lady she is...we turned to Google! Lol When we googled, it said most people reported something in their child's nose. I didn't really think this would be possible for her but what else was there to do? So we got the suction machine and sucked her little nostril and BAM I saw something
Andy....A hard-working Dad who has a heart of gold and would give you the shirt off his back; Amy....The sweetest girl who wanted to do it right --so they got married and were so excited to be blessed with the joy of having a little sister for Elijah. Two of the biggest hearts we know. We are blessed to call you family. While this is the toughest of times, God IS watching....Witness the power of prayer..................EMILY!

Thank you so much for everyone that has given or prayed for our family! We are so very grateful for all of the support. This has been a very difficult time, but God has been so good to us through it all. I know He will continue to pull Emily through this and us as well. He is hope, love, & strength and He has definitely shown that. God Bless you all and please continue to pray for our family ❤️❤️❤️ Emily is doing ok, still critical and in ICU, but things are looking ok. She is a strong little girl and God has her in His almighty hands!
Holy God we humbly and boldly ask through the power of the blood of Christ, for healing, minimal pain & damage, family comfort, healthcare wisdom. Swiftly move we pray. We don't understand but we trust You and know You work all things for good. In Jesus name, Amen. My heart is broken over this sweet baby, prayers lifted daily!
Andy, i will meet you at the hospital and donate skin for her graft. It is a painful process i went through at 19. Contact me if it is possible for me to help. Ill bet they can use my skin because they sometimes use cadaver skin. Please let me know asap if you need my donation. God bless.
May the peace of God which surpasses all understanding guard you hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. It is in the midst of chaos, that God uses us in the most profound ways. Your heart is breaking, so is mine... too much pain sometimes. When it seems to hard to go on, a gentle touch can make us strong. To share the suffering... to ease the pain... to reveal the truth... that there isn't anything love can't do.
I want to thank all of my friends who have prayed for my family and possible contributed to the financial dilemma it is in. Poor Emily needs her mommy and daddy with her and that takes them away from their jobs.....their son and their life. Thank you, thank you, thank you for anything you have done or given to them.
Were you able to get at it? Looks like the post may have been truncated.The Lord bless and keep you all. Praying for Emily and for you all.
Thank you all for the prayers and donations. It means the world to all of her family. God bless you all.
Keeping Emily and your family in my prayer's. God is good. Believe and you shall receive.
Precious baby - keep on pluggin' Emily (and mom, dad and family)!
