Its been busy with the Christmas season in full swing. Emma is enjoying the lights and decorations that brighten her world, although it did take her a little while to get acclimated to the decor. She has been enjoying watching Christmas DVDs with her favorite being Frosty The Snowman. Emma has had lots of fun visiting with family. She has even been able to help bake some yummy Christmas cookies when Grandma came over last Monday.
As for the new baby; due in April...So far she looks good. The Doctor is pleased with her growth and we will continue to be monitored closely every 2-3 weeks. We continue to pray for Alissa's progress with being able to consume food and tolerate liquids. As of now she is making progress one day at a time and hopes to be able to enjoy some Christmas dinner. She continues to be on bed rest with modified activity, which is hard on everyone. Please pray for us.
We are truly blessed with wonderful family & friends who are there to help support us during this time. Thank you for all you do.

Well Emma seemed to not be tolerating the shorter trach while in recovery as she couldn't keep her oxygen saturation level up. We switched back to her custom trach and that didn't help either. After about 5 hours in the recovery room, it was finally decided that Emma should move up to the new PICU. She slept a lot yesterday and woke up a little happier today. She is looking a little better and is about to start her feeding again. We have no idea how long she will stay, but don't expect for it to be too long. **As we are writing this, the earthquake hit. Being on the 6th floor of a building on rollers was quite exciting for Emma. **
