She'll be having her tonsils and adenoids out, tubes put in her ears, and a sinus swab done NEXT THURSDAY! Wow, that's quick! We'll go to St. Pete on Wednesday, stay the night at the Ronald McDonald House and the next morning she'll have her surgery. We already know they'll be keeping her at least one night and she'll be in ICU after surgery. We'll spend at least 2 days there, maybe more, but it will be so good to have this behind us!
PLEASE pray for Miss Emma! Any surgery at all is life threatening to her right now and she needs those prayers more than ever. We do too, it's going to be a rough time for the rest of the family as well. We plan to bring all 3 of the other kids over to St. Pete with us along with my mom and she'll watch them so we can see Emma, but we'll trade off some and make time for them to spend with one of us too. K especially keeps asking if we're leaving again to go to Ukraine and Brianna's had a hard time with us leaving even for Dr's appointments, so we want them close by. Of course we know they'd survive if we left them but this is more about finding the most comfortable situation for everyone in the midst of an uncomfortable situation :)
If Emma could talk, she'd say:
"Спасибо за молитвы! Кстати, Я пытаюсь сесть и я могу положить мои ноги за мою голову"
"Thanks for the prayers! By the way, I'm trying to sit up and I can put my foot behind my head"
