A Little Miracle

Emily is a little miracle and I am so thankful.

This was Emily on Sunday, wired up to a heart monitor and dialysis machine and a couple of other gadgets. Four lots of fluid being pumped into her, dextrose, antibiotics and two others I am not sure about.

She was a very sick little girl.




Tonight I spent three hours with a little miracle, these are photo's to prove it:o)




Is this a MIRACLE or what?

She has been taken off dialysis for a couple of hours to see how she goes and she can have what ever food she wants at the moment.  These Jaffa Cakes and Cheddars are particular favourite's o Emily's.  When I  gave them to her you would think it was Christmas she was so excited.  She hugged the Cheddars like a teddy bear...    She was allowed two Jaffa Cakes and can have some Cheddars tomorrow.

She is having a full body scan tomorrow to check there is no organ failure.  Please pray this scan comes back normal. The doctors and nurses at Alder Hey are very pleased with her progress. We her family are delighted to say the least.

I was telling my daughter about the prayers being said and the healing thoughts being sent out for Emily by my friends here in Blogland and she was astounded. I have told her I will show her the comments left by so many kind and loving people, when they come home.  She asked me to thank each and everyone of you for your kindness, your faith and your caring for strangers.  So I do Thank You with all my heart, I know it has been the power of pray that has brought this precious child back from the brink.

Nothing like gifts from Grandma to make a precious little one feel better. :) I will pray fervently that the body scan comes out perfectly, with no damage to the flower of your heart. Big hugs for you and your family. :)

The transformation in Emily shown in these pics has certainly made me feel emotional. Hope the scans go ok and that she will be home soon.
