Emmett update. Folks, if I said Emmett has been excelling in his recovery, I would be selling it short! We're so very blessed to have him doing so well. All of his numbers look really good. His chest tube outflow has been minimal. In fact, they were already throwing words like "discharge" at us today! If he continues to do so well, there could be a possibility we're home come Sunday, which was a shock to us. I'm sure Emmett would be happy get back home too.

Our day started with a long night. Emmett was pretty irritable most of the night and into the morning. The doctor decided to up his pain medication some, and also approve him for clear liquids. This little man sucked a bottle of pedialyte down in record time. With the addition of both of these, Emmett's mood became much more positive. After tolerating clear liquids, we received a green light to feed him as we wish! With a full belly of milk, Emmett was back to his normal, happy self. We were both able to hold our little guy today as well! I had to grit my teeth to keep from squeezing him too tight. We sure love him.

Emmett's future contains a few uncertainties. It is not really known what caused the tissue to grow around his aortic valve. One hypothesis is related to his slow heart rate, so we're praying that the tissue doesn't grow back, especially now that he's paced. The shelf life of his current pacemaker is 8-10 years, so they will be replacing and relocating his pacemaker to his upper chest area from his abdomen. Lastly, it's believed that the size of his aorta will decrease with the addition of the pacemaker, but we'll have to wait and see.

Once again, thank you all for your thoughts and prayers for Emmett. We're so blessed to have you in Emmett's corner!

Emmett update. Day late again. I was working on an update last night when we got hit with some scary news.

Yesterday started on the highest of highs. The cardiologist entered that morning to go over things about Emmett, which included discharge instructions! The doctor rounding on the floor entered after that also giving discharge instructions. It was finally happening; we were headed home! As I get ready to start packing, Krystal mentioned that she thought Emmett felt warm, and decided to take his temp. That can't be right, call the nurse. He takes a rectal reading for a more accurate measurement...103. Concern immediately sets in as the Dr delivered what was already expected news, you're not going anywhere. Poor little guy then had to undergo a blood draw, which we hated for Emmett. He had endured enough pain.

Late last night the nurse came in with news that made my heart sink. She said labs came back positive for parainfluenza. I couldn't believe our little guy had the flu! Fear set in not only for Emmett, but for Emmie too. After a worried filled four hours, the doctor finally entered to speak with me. Parainfluenza is not the flu, just the medical term for what we commonly associate the "cold" with. You can all imagine the relief we felt upon hearing this.

This morning brought a continued fever, but low grade. Emmett was as happy as ever, and otherwise healthy. The doctor entered with a positive update for Emmett, and asked if we were ready to try this discharge thing again! We were shocked, as we figured we were there till the fever subsided. The doctor said that what they were going to treatment him with is no different than what we would back at home. This sleep deprived dad welcomed this news with open arms.

So with all of that said.... WE'RE HOME! It's hard to believe that a week ago today we were being admitted in preparation of one of the scariest moments of our lives. And now we're past it and home. We're so thankful God watched over our little miracle. We love you to pieces Emmett.
