Emma Update

Please remember to pray for little Emma and her mom. Today she was able to jump off the ventilator for a short time. She was not able to breathe well so now the doctors are talking about a trach. My heart really goes out not only to Emma but to her mom too. It is so hard seeing other babies around you getting better and going home...sometimes to parents who do not seem fit. It reminds me of something my dear mother-in-law always said..."There ain't much fair in this ol' world." Boy...that's the truth!! So, when you are praying for Emma, please remember to pray for her mom too.

Welcome to our new blog! Pete and I hope that you will visit us often and check out what Gus' Gang is doing. We are excited about this ministry and we look forward to encouraging families with chronically ill children. If you know of a family that you think needs to be encouraged by Gus' Gang please let us know!

Take a look...

at sweet Emma Cody!

Emma has set up residence in the East Tennessee Children's Hospital NICU...she's been there since January 2, 2006! She is a micro-preemie and is loved dearly by her family and her nurses. Right now Emma needs prayers for her lungs to heal, for her fundo to work and for protection of her bowels. Please also pray for Emma's big sister, Gracie. Times like these are very hard on siblings...let's shower this precious family with prayers!!

I'm a sucker for sucker pictures!!
