I am so thankful for those of you that don't even know Emily who have written to say you are praying. The God of all grace hears every prayer and he is at work in and through Emily and her family.
She did have the surgery on Wednesday. They removed a portion of her kidney, about 25% of it that was damaged and not functioning. They also removed a football sized hematoma from around her kidney. She is still in the ICU and recovering. We continue to pray that her blood pressure and fever would stabilize and that she would get some relief from the contact dermatitis she has developed.
And another prayer - that she would get out of the ICU, so her younger sisters who are not allowed in there, will be able to see her. They miss their big sister.
Thanks for praying.
