It is Me Emily

I have been spending a lot of time with my mom up in bed. I look at Edward shirts while she sleeps . I have found a few really neat Edward shirts that I hope Santa brings. I just started book number 3.
My mom has been sick since her appt yesterday. My dad will explain everything better. But I know that she has a infection that meant the drain had to be replaced and her neck re stitches .She is on some antiobitics big pills. The big bandage around her neck will be there for a long time now to help the drain and the open place close.
She also has two bandaides on her face now. They had to take some samples cause it looks like it is a infection . She is very not happy right now. She threw up all night and it makes me scared she is choke.
I am done with school for 3 weeks . I am going to read the rest of the Twilight books. But the last one also cause I will miss them when I am done.

Thank you for keeping us updated on your Mommy's progress. We are still praying for her. It is good to know the makes it easier to pray.
I hope that you get the Edward shirt you want for Christmas too! I have heard all about the movie and books but still have not seen or read them...can you believe it? I really should get on that. Maybe over the break. (keep your fingers crossed)
Please tell your Mom that we are praying. How is Philip doing?

Hi Emily,
What a blessing it is for your mom to have you as a daughter! Please know that so many people are praying daily, not only for your mom but for the whole family. We know it is tough on all of you.

Hi Emily - Thank you so much for keeping us posted on your Mommy's progress. We always have her in our prayers and we are hoping that she is feeling better real soon.

I just had surgery not too long ago and I hurt for her knowing that she had to have her drainage tube put back in. They definitely are not pleasant when they come out. I know mine hurt something awful.

Please let her know that I am thinking about her and I hope that Santa brings you everything that you want for Christmas.

Merry Christmas to you Emily.
Give your Momma some hugs for me.

I'm so sorry! Thank you sharing your journey. Our family will keep you in our prayers.

E said...

Oh Emily,

What a great job you are doing - helping your Mom by being there for her and with her and by helping your dad keep all of us updated so we know how best to pray.

You hang in there and keep being support for both of them. I know it's scarey, but God is at work and he's gonna see your mom and your family through this. =0)

Enjoy your books Emily!!! Tell your mom that we are praying for her, I sure hope she quits throwing up soon. I couldn't imagine throwing up with a throat surgery.

DiPaola Momma said...

Morning Emily, So sad to hear that mom's not doing well. But as a mommy too I know you being there for her helps.

I'm going to start reading the books next week when my kids are on school break. We'll have to talk about them. I hate getting to the end of a book too because I feel like I have to say good bye. Maybe that's why I read the same books over and over.. duh:-)

Give mom and dad big hugs and have a good day sweetie. Thanks for the post.

Dropping by from SITs....I am not going to say I know how you feel, but please know there is hope out there and people to talk to. My dad has battled cancer 5 times in 28 years. His latest being skin cancer a year and a half ago until currently and then just very recently diagnosed with prostate cancer AGAIN. It's all overwhelming at times and scary, but please know that God has a plan for everyone. I am having a rough time with what my dad is going thru and can't begin to imagine how you are feeling. I will be praying for your family.

Aimee said...

You are a very strong girl and your Mom is very lucky to have you. Please let your family know that you are on my prayer list. God bless you and your family this Christmas!

Lifting you up in prayer!
One of my closest friends just had a miracle in her life. Her 2 yr old daughter was diagnosed with cancer 6 months ago and NO ONE thought she would survive the first round of chemo, let alone 6 months.
She just had a scan of her whole body after completing her final round of chemo and THERE IS NO CANCER!
prayer works and I will keep you all in mine. I KNOW God is listening and He will work miracles in your life.

Many blessings.
