Well it's been a long night...mostly sleepless but I did find a little bit of rest...please pray for Jon as he didn't sleep much at all. We take turns for each other...last night he had to be the strong one for me and this morning it's my turn. It's amazing how God gives each of us the strength when we need it. Emmalee is still in very critical condition. We haven't gotten any word this morning yet on her...they made us stay in the hospital waiting room last night just in case so I guess that they didn't have to come and get us gives us some hope. But the next 72 hours are critical and we'll just see. But as I was laying in bed I had just a blank mind (I don't think I've had that this whole time) and I just heard this voice saying, "Ali, we are going to do a mighty work in there. You just have to sit back and watch it happen." I know that was the Holy Spirit talking to me...there is no other explanation in my mind as to where that could have come from. We got to see little Emma last night and early early this morning. She looks so tough...very puffy and hooked to so many machines. They try to prepare you but really can anyone be prepared to see their little girl looking like that. But we keep telling ourselves...she had to go through this surgery to even have a chance at life...it wasn't an elective surgery she needed it. And back at 25 weeks when we found out about her heart problem we felt a peace about it (a peace that surpasses all understanding) and we know God has been with her this whole time. He has plans for her. He has us wrapped in love and has her wrapped in love. He loves us...He doesn't like to see us suffer like this but this is life and He will help us get through it. God is good all the time! Thanks for your prayers and kind words for us...please keep them coming. I'll write more when I know more.
Jon, Ali and sweet baby Emma
