Update...











So it has been awhile since my last entry and that is because the action never stops here! Thankfully Emalee is doing GREAT! Her breathing is almost back to "normal" and other then a daily breathing treatment she is off all meds. She is starting to gain weight and is the roundest baby I have ever seen!! She is "talking" all the time and smiles so bright!!! My health is not so great yet. I had a relapse about two weeks ago. My throat became super swollen, 103' temp, and my tonsils were so swollen and covered in pus pockets that I literally could not swallow. However, after seeing three Drs we have a plan! It is believed that there is still bacteria in my throat from my surgery in November and I will continue to have 'relapses" until either the bacteria is killed or my tonsils are removed. The plan: I am taking antibiotics daily for the next two months and if during or after treatment I have another relapse, my tonsils will be removed. My tongue is still numb on the left side but there are stinging sensations which is a good sign. The boys are staying home from Mother's Day Out in order to avoid bringing home germs to Emalee....the days have been LONG staying at home all day but I know these days go by fast so we are tying to enjoy each and EVERY minute together! Thank you all for the prayers!!!

Oh my goodness Dionne, Emalee looks like a Gerber baby! I can't believe how awesome she looks after being so sick. She and your whole family look so PRECIOUS! I am so glad everyone is doing better!
Love, Aunt $
