UPDATE – July 5, 2006

Emily celebrated the 4th of July with her family and the arrival of a new kitten, Caroline. Caroline has been a constant companion of Emily since she has arrived. Caroline and Emily moved into the Lower Cape Fear Hospice Life Care Center this afternoon. Here she will be close to doctors and nursing care. Emily’s physical condition continues to deteriorate, but her spirit is strong. She continues to color, draw, laugh and eat.

Kristi, Happy and Jake would like to thank you for your prayers and giving them the space and time to be with Emily. Your prayers and cards are appreciated. Please do not phone or visit at this time. As more information becomes available we will share it with you including ways that you may help the family.

Please continue to pray for healing for Emily and her family.
