We Are Home!!!!

Emme was one very happy little girl Friday night! She had the biggest smile when she saw her Daddy at the airport! And it got even bigger when she saw her brothers and sister! She amazed the doctors and nurses with her quick recovery from such a major surgery. That is all God. So many of you have been praying for her and words can't express what that means to us. So many have blessed our family with meals, trips to the store, babysitting and sweet words of encouragement. Thank you.
While I was gone Colter managed to come down with pneumonia and Wade went in today and has Strep throat! The kitchen counter is looking like a small pharmacy.
Please continue to pray for our Emme as we await test results. They have sent it all over the country and no one has seen anything like it. She is sporting her new helmet that she has to wear 24 hours a day...yes, she even sleeps in it. This is to protect her brain as the surgeon removed a large part of her skull. I think she wears it pretty well....and yay for a quick fix to a bad hair day.
One night this past week I was really struggling and God brought Psalms 16 to my mind as I was paging through my Bible. What a great passage! And then a sweet friend shared a blog post her hubby wrote...www.lifeatbiggerdirt.blogspot.com. We travelled with this sweet family in January when we went to China. What a privilege to now count them as friends. His post really blessed this Momma's heart that night! If you get time go check out his post and read that passage in Psalms.


  1. SO glad you are home and praising God for the fantastic news that the tumor didn't go through the dura!

    Enjoy being a family of 9 all under the same roof!

    I am praying that God will continue to bless your sweet little Emme and make her well. She is such a precious little girl!
