Emily is blessed to have so many people who care about her and who have offered supportive messages during this most difficult time. With Emily’s current condition she cannot respond to the many email, text, voice mail and blog messages she has received. She sleeps most of the time and is extremely weak. For example, she cannot get out of a chair or go up or down stairs by herself anymore and she now has oxygen to help her breathe. Please understand that Emily treasures each message and definitely feels and appreciates the love and support you are all providing.
For those of you who have scheduled visits, we believe you should come as planned but please understand that Emily is less responsive than any of us would like to see. In typical Emily fashion she has “risen to the occasion” on most visits and has enjoyed them very much.
Also, so many of you have sincerely asked what you can do. Unfortunately the only thing that most can do for Emily is to pray for her. Our whole family is comforted by and appreciates the support and prayers that are being offered. We will continue to provide updates.
