Princess Emme


Lisa and Emme and Rusty are all doing well!! It's never easy when the baby has to come 2 months early because of an emergency, but God has kept his hand on all of them! Emme arrived Saturday November, 21st, around 2:30pm. She weighed a whopping 2.7lbs, and is 13.5 inches long. She has to spend some time in neonatal intensive care for a bit, but is being cared for very well. She was on a ventilator for about 24 hours, then was doing so well that she got her ET tube taken out and a nasal cannula instead! This was good! Heather and Tyler were kind enough to send me some pics from when they visited. I cried when I saw them, because Emme just looks so pitiful and vulnerable. Heather says even though she is tiny, she seems to have some sass. She is one of the Bolen girls, after all! My mom flew out Sunday and is going to be with them through Thursday and is helping Lisa to get up and around after her surgery. We don't know when Emme will get to go home but we are just happy she is ok. As a respiratory therapist, I will have an opportunity to work in the neonatal intensive care with babies. Next winter I will actually be doing a rotation at a hospital in either Reno, Oregon, or Sacramento with babies. After all this excitement I think it would be very rewarding to do just that. These people took good care of my Princess Emme, and maybe I can to return the favor by doing the same for millions of people out there. I may change my mind after the rotations, but for now it seems like a good career avenue. Please keep praying for Emme, she is not out of the woods yet, but close!
