24 Hours

After 24 hours of being without her trach, Emma is doing wonderful. She actually got to come home already since she was doing so well. For her entire life, she has required oxygen at night. Last night, she didn't. She has been breathing completely on her own and has had great blood oxygen levels ever since getting her trach out yesterday. She has been making so much more noise, but won't talk very much on camera. Here is a small clip of her without her trach.

Dear Mark & Alissa:
Brian and I have continually prayed for Emma since her birth, and we were overjoyed to get the email from Marci with the wonderful news. I began to cry tears of praises to God. We look forward to hearing about her progress, and hope to see her soon.
Love, Aunt Nancy & Uncle Brian
