This is baby Emma. She was born 10 weeks early at 990 grams on October 21, 2009. She has underdeveloped kidneys, heart and lungs which are causing numerous problems on her fragile little body. After her first operation, her lungs began functioning well and she seemed to be growing strong and healthy. But on a Sunday night a month later, Emma went thru a septic shock. It is a fatal infection in the blood stream that shuts down all the organs. She had gone through dialysis and several surgeries including stitching up a ripped intestine.
As of now, baby Emma has already undergone 10 operations. She has made this far and still showing so much strength. She needs our prayers.
I'm urging you to pray for Emma.
1: Her brain. Pray that there would be no long-term brain damage from all the
challenges she's faced.
2: Her kidneys: Pray that her kidneys would function in perfect health to filter her body and produce urine on a daily basis.
3: Her intestines: Pray that this would also heal as soon as possible.
4: The doctors told us today that her lungs seem to be getting a bit weaker the past few days.
Pray for strength and health for the lungs too.
5: Her heart: Her heart rate dropped quite a bit several times the past few days. Pray it would be strong again.
