This was just posted on Emma's CarePage site:
from Nana (Carole) Emma has had a VERY bad night....I got here at 10:30 last evening and she was desating into the 20's and 30's. The doctors and nurses would work with her and she would get better for a while and then her stats would drop down again. We called Jessica about 3:30 this morning and she took Gracie to Bapa (David) and came on down. The doctors are continuing to work and try to help her...they have tried different types of ventilators and oscillators, and lots of different meds. She is now on the ventilator and Nitric. They have started antibiotics, and checked her blood gases just about hourly. The doctor came by right before I came out to update the carepage and said her last blood gases looked a little better. I would like to ask everyone to please intercede for Emma, Jessica and the rest of the family today and pray for God to give each one of us the strength to carry on. AGAIN, A HUGE THANK YOU TO THE DOCTORS, NURSES, RESPITORY THERAPISTS, AND ALL OF THE OTHER WONDERFUL PEOPLE WHO WORK IN THE NICU. YOUR DEDICATION, SUPPORT, AND CARING ARE WONDERFUL. Please excuse any typos....it has been a long night. Thank you for your prayers, notes of encouragement, and all of the other wonderful outpourings of love you have given us.
