Well it's about 9:08 p.m. and it's been a roller coaster of a day to say the least. Her heart surgery went good...he did the repairs and felt very good about them...he said he even did them in a very timely manner. But then they tried to take her off the bypass and she was having a little trouble so they decided it would be best to stick her on an echmo (I don't know if that's how you spell it) machine which basically gives her heart and lungs a break to catch up while this machine does the work for them. Okay...we can handle that. Then before they were ready to bring her up to her room she developed a blood clot so he scrubbed back in to remove that. Unfortunately he can't be sure he got it all and since it was in her aortic valve the clot would have gone to her brain if he didn't get it all. So now they have her head on ice...they cooled her body down to 35 degrees and they are going to wait until tomorrow to see if she wakes up and they'll also do a ultrasound on her brain. It's pretty serious and it's hard not to feel anxious for her but we keep reminding ourselves that God is in control...He knew the plans He had for her and we need to trust Him. Please be praying for our little dolly...she needs it!
Jon, Ali, and little baby Emmalee

I'll probably be awake with you, anxious for your Emmalee to come through this. I hope to hear she's okay early in the morning! Will be praying and remember how loved you all are.
