We are THANKFUL for MIRACLES!

Who could forget this little guy?


I want to start out by saying that, I KNOW that our Heavenly Father is the reason why Emmett is healing, and that Prayer and Faith do indeed work! Every time I went into his ICU room, there was an actual physical feeling that came over me.. A feeling of deep peace, like you could just sit there all day. I would cry on the way home from my visits with Emmett and Karla, because that feeling was soo profound! And the minute I left his room I could feel the stark difference. The last time it happened I called Karla, from the parking lot crying like a little baby.. She said that other's, and even the Nursing staff had noticed this feeling as well. All I can say, is that Emmett must have some important work to do here!




Emmett



is HOME!!!


He is a Miracle! From before he was born this little guy has had to fight to be here. We have been watching in awe... Emmett came home this last weekend and even all of his Surgeons, and specialist were shaking their heads in disbelief. Amazed that not only did he survive, but he has (in record time) recovered enough to be home with his family. YES! Emmett is home!


Karla, Michael, and his big brother Ethan would like to thank everyone who prayed for him and their Family, they believe with their whole hearts that FAITH and PRAYER is why he is home today. I got to hear Emmett's raspy little voice this morning, and I couldn't stop the tears!


He still has a long road ahead, but he is up for it! He has occupational, and physical therapy daily, and a special Nurse comes to him once a week. Karla has become his secretary and chauffeur, she said she scheduled 8 appointments for him yesterday. They were with all of his Surgeons, and Specialists, to keep a close eye on him. He is a very important guy!


For now Emmett still has his Esophageal Ostomy, and his feeding tube... Eventually he will have a few more surgeries to reconnect everything. And then after his esophagus remembers how to work he will get his feeding tube out. But don't worry all that isn't getting them down, they are just feeling so utterly blessed to still have him, and in his own bed no less.

One last thing... Karla found comfort in this song...it is a beautiful song, and said exactly what she has been feeling. GODSPEED ~ Listen if you have a few extra minutes...

Go Emmett GO!


Godspeed....
