UPDATE #4 (Friday the 20th) "Miss Emerson had a very good night! Her swelling has come down tremendously, her blood pressures and heart rate have been lower, for her-probably normal for most kids, and she is peeing TONS! The nurses even gave Emmy a purple bow for her hair for being such a good girl!"
UPDATE #3: "The doctors have said Emerson has suffered Liver and Kidney damage that isn't necessarily permanent. They've made sure to let us know that she is very sick, and they are hopeful, but it will be a long recovery"
UPDATE #2: After having 2 cardiac arrests yesterday..."Emerson made it through the night. She is still having problems with her blood pressure, but the doctors are watching her very closely. It's gonna be a rough week."
UPDATE: "The doctors have had to reopen Emerson's chest because her blood pressure and heart rate have dropped. Still waiting..."
A family that I've connected with over the past year has a 1 year old WS daughter, Emerson. She just got out of her 2nd heart surgery a few minutes ago. She had to go on bypass and has been having some problems ever since. "She has been having irregular rhythms and has needed shocked and chest compressions. She is stable for the moment but the doctors say it will be minute by minute for the first 24 hours"
Please please pray for her! These next few hours are vital!
