Here's the latest update on Emma & Taylor who have just had surgery today. (FYI - this surgery was to place a band around Emma's aorta to help reduce her blood pressure.)
Just wanted to let you know how well all went today. They were in surgery about 1 ½ hours and they are now in intensive care. They are keeping them somewhat sedated with morphine, at least for now. The doctors seemed pleased and felt that it could not have gone any better. I think the girls will be in for maybe 2-4 days and then possibly a couple of days here and then they will head home – I think towards the end of next week. I don’t know for sure. I think everyone has felt that these little girls continue to be blessed with all the prayers that have gone out for them. It was pretty cute. This morning, they put purple tape on Emma (and her dolly) and pink tape on Taylor & dolly. When we got into the ICU room – they each had a nurse – Taylor’s nurse had wrapped the pink tape around her own head/wrist and Emma’s had done purple. They are being watched pretty closely with monitors and everything is being documented.
All in all, very good signs today –

Love, Grandma Joan

Nice to read a new update on the girls when I live so far away and know very little about what's been going on. Love from the Lows up here in Canada and good to hear they are recovering well.

I just watched your story last night and I cried so much just watching all the love you have for them. I really shocked how strong both of you are and so proud of the other children. I really wish the girls health and a long life. I pray they find away to separate them safely. Wow, I really commend you, what a great family!!! Sending nothing but love and hope your way. Please keep updating.
