Prayers for Emily

I know many of you follow Emily H's blog: Life to the Fullest! If you haven't heard or read the latest post, Emily has been in the hospital for the past month battling a serious lung infection. In addition, her kidneys shut down for a brief awhile, but that situation is getting better after completing a round of dialysis. However, the lung infection is really taking it's toll on Emily's body and not really getting any better. She was intubated this afternoon in order for her body to get some much needed rest, for her oxygen levels to rise, and to get some much needed nutrition. She was just unable to continue to fight the infection on her own. Please pray for Emily. If you would like to follow daily updates, her parents created a page for Emily. Her Mom posts at least every day, if not more. You do have to sign up, but it is free. I highly encourage you to sign up so you can continue to pray specifically for her and to stay up-to-date. You can click on the above link to take you directly to Emily's Carepage or click on the link provided on her blog.

A lot of us CF bloggers have lost some dear friends recently from some bad infections. Emily is battling 2 strands of bacteria, one being psuedomonas. She will win this battle, but is in serious condition right now.

Thank you!

Thanks for posting. I am a close friend of Emily having known her for many years going to the same clinic. I was heartbroken when I heard she went from the bipap to the vent in 24 hours. I am most definitely praying non stop for Emily and her family. <3

Will keep her in my prayers. Calm breaths, calm thoughts, and god's warmth to Emily.
