Tuesday Update for Emily

Today was a GREAT day for Emily!!! The nutrients that they are giving her through IV and all of the medicines are really making a difference. For the first time in a week, we put her in a wheelchair and took her out of her room today. It made her tired, but she enjoyed it.

She even ate "real" food today!!!! We are soooo excited about that. The doctors have her drinking a 'special' drink in hopes that when she is released, she won't have to continue to be tube fed. She is pretty determined, so I'm sure she will accomplish having NO IV's in when she leaves there.

Tomorrow is going to be a very important day - the doctors expect all biopsies to be back, so hopefully we will get a definitive answer as to what is going on and what to do about it.

Emily is overwhelmed at the number of e-mails that she has received, calls, etc....so, from the family, we say a huge THANK YOU!!!!!

I pray the results are definitive and what you are praying for, and if they are not, God already knows His Plan for you all. Love you girl!
