Friday, February 25, 2011 Part 2

Well we are back in the hospital! Emily was admitted today because her counts were so high and her CD34 was up she is ready for stem cell harvesting but what sucks is that they had to put another line in her leg where the main artery is like her other line except this one will not stay in!

This is really frustrating because we were looking forward to a relaxing weekend with the girls! And on top of that we have had enough after one week! 

Today I had to walk out the room for them to put in the line and I just cried because it really bothered me putting her under again and her having to have another "ouchie" and she is crying it hurts!

So what we want to know is can someone tell us that the nightmare is over because we are done! We just can't take anymore! Its been a trying week!

  1. Hey Shannon. We saw Emily's donation bucket at Divas and Dudes and put a little something in there :). So, I'm wondering if you need any help at home? House keeping/laundry stuff? I mostly at home so I could come out to help once a week or so. I know you are so overwhelmed right now! You can message me on FB :) Stephanie Taylor

  2. Hi Shannon!
    I sooo wish I had the words or thoughts to bring peace to you and I wish this could all be over for Emily and your family.

    Since I don't know what to say I will leave this with you:

    Peace I Leave with you, my peace I give unto you; not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. (John 14:27-KJV)

    May you, Emily and your family find the peace & comfort that you need this weekend.
    *hugs & loves*

  3. Hi Shannon.
    I know that nothing I can say will help you and your precious girl through this time. But I wanted you to know that I am thinking and praying for Emily and your family. I wish Emily a speedy recovery from all this.

    Hugs to you and your strong little girl.

  4. I just feel so compelled to send some love to you though you do not know me. I am in tears for you and your family and your dear sweet Emily.

    I have no words, just many many prayers going out to your family.

    "My precious child,
    I love you and I would never leave you.
    During your times of trial and suffering,
    when you see only one set of footprints,
    it was then that I carried you."

  5. Your family is in my thoughts. While you are going through this try to take strength from those around you and those that are sending you their prayers, thoughts and love.
    Sending your family all the positive thoughts and prayers I can.

  6. Still praying for you ALL, and my church family is praying hard too! There's never a prayer that my 6 year old doesn't remember Emily by name...
    Sending love with prayers!
    The Jacobsen Family

  7. I know we don't know each other but I want you to know your family is in my thoughts. I can't imagine going through what you are going through. I will be praying for Emily and the rest of your family
