Parents see child’s survival as miracle


“When Elea went through all her surgeries, Emmi was always a different baby. She would be cranky upset and not take naps until after Elea would have a surgery and be stable. Then Emmi would be normal again,” Frank said. “Even in Nebraska, the night before her surgery to get her new (TPN line), Emmi did not sleep that night and was up before I was to see Elea before surgery. Emmi really looks out for her twin.

“It helps to have Emmi because Elea looks up to her and wants to do the same things as her twin and older sister.”

And now the chances are that she will.
