Mr Emmett made it home this afternoon! We are so excited and wanted to let you all know. After Emmett's surgery on Thursday, Emmett started to turn a corner. He is able to swallow his secretions with out them getting stuck and spilling over into his airway. The surgery is called an esophageal dilation. The original plan was to do this procedure every 4 weeks. Seeing that Emmett's strictures in his esophagus narrow quickly, his Physician has decided to perform the dilation every 2 weeks. We hope this will enable Emmett to stay home instead of being admitted.
face as his little body melted into his crib. A little smile appeared on his sweet face as he closed his eyes to relax.
Emmett has increased his vocabulary, we have noticed just since Friday. Amazing what feeling better can do. He tries to repeat many of the words that we say to him. If you all could imagine, Emmett has an adorable raspy and kind of husky little voice. It totally fit's his little personality.

We are so thankful for the wonderful Nurses, Respiratory Therapist, Nurse Practitioners and Physicians who stayed close to Emmett's side this past week. We are so thankful for their knowledge and Expertise. Thank you!
Michael and I are so excited that our family is all under one roof, once again. Keep fighting Emmett.
Go, Emmett Go!!!
