I received many wonderfully supportive and prayerful comments and emails regarding our goddaughter Emily, who was hospitalized last Friday for some as-yet undiagnosed malady.
Here is an update on her condition. Her mother wrote:
I'm thrilled to report that Emily is starting to feel better today. She hasn't needed as many pain meds today as she has in the past few days. That is an improvement. I think she looks better, too. She isn't as pale as she was nor as unsteady on her feet.
The doctors have diagnosed a serious nutritional malabsorption issue. They are just throwing junk at her, hoping something helps at this time. We know she's not going to get 'well' in here (the hospital) but as long as she is stable we are hoping to get her home and check out alternative treatments. She has lost an additional 2 1/2 pounds since she was admitted Friday night. I've ordered some nutritional support products that another friend recommended.... his son went through something similar and it saved his son's life. (Mannatech)
We just need her stable so we can try a different route for healing. We have to do something
Thank you for the love and support and prayers.
God bless all of you!

Emily is feeling better but still has a long road ahead. That being said, after 5 days of hospitalization, she's finally stable enough to go home! Praise God!
Thank you all so much for all the love and prayers! I can't tell you how much I appreciate all of you. Please keep the prayers and good wishes coming!
Your prayers have meant so much to this family. Thank you, dear readers, for rallying around this young woman.
