Last night when the girls were taking turns with their own prayers, Izza's went something like this:
Please bless Emily can have her surgery and get better and not be sick so I can say hi to her and not be in trouble. Thank you for Jesus and Heavenly Father to protect us. Bless Olivia not to be sick and have surgery.
Say these things.... Amen
I tried not to cry while she prayed. It was so sweet and so sad for me. Isabelle has had to stay away from Emily since the twins were born. She can so easily get Emily sick from all the germs she carries. Of course I will wash and sanitize her from head to toe and then allow it. Since the RSV and the push back of the surgery I have been super cautious. I have a hard time letting anyone near her without cringing inside. So, in general, Izza does get in trouble when she says hi to Emily. :( I can't wait until Em is healthy and strong and we can all be together all of the time!!

We had to take her to the ER on Thursday night because she can't keep her medicine down and has had a hard time eating because of the heart failure. Her lungs are heavy with fluid/blood which makes it hard for her to eat and she is just so exhausted all the time. After several hours and tests; IV, blood draws, catheter... we were able to leave the ER with the hopes that we can keep her healthy for one more week.

Things are moving along after a minor set back with the RSV. We have had to push things back a few weeks, because they wouldn't sedate her, or do surgery within 6 weeks of an RSV diagnosis. The new dates are set and now its all too real. Emily will go into Primary Children's Medical Center for her sedated echo cardiogram on April 6th. The surgeons will use this echo as a map of Emily's heart to see details of the hole so they know exactly where/how to repair it. Her surgery date is set for April 16th. We will meet with the surgeon the day before when we do all her pre-op stuff. The recovery is said to last anywhere for 4-8 days on average. We are glad to have dates set and know that it will all be done soon and she will be on her way to a healthy life! No more medicines to make her puke, no more super fatty formulas that make her gag, no more Synagis shots every 28 days, less doctor appointments/calls, calmer parents! :) Thanks to everyone who cares so much! Love you all!!

My heart breaks to know that they will be separated when Em has her surgery. The average time spent at Primary Children's for recovery is 8 days. The doc said could be more, but most likely not any less. They love being together and looking at each other. It is just too sweet! I love every busy minute!!

Where have we been???
This was just today both awake and smiling while they look at books. They still cough a lot but are eating better and staying awake for longer spurts! They are the sweetest babies, even sick they sleep through the night! I just had to get up a couple of times to put their pacifiers back in their mouths!! I am so grateful for the priesthood in my home, to be able to see the power and watch my children regain their strength.
