Since it is impossible to communicate with everyone personally about Emily's progress we will update this blog whenever there is anything new to report.

The Flake children are being cared for by Curtis' mom, Emily's mom, and Curtis's three sisters. The Relief Society is bringing them meals. Their needs are being met very well and Curtis is so grateful for all of your kind offers to assist their family. More than anything else, at this time, they need your faith and prayers.

If you need to communicate with Curtis or the family you are welcome to contact me (Curtis' sister, Angela) via email and I will deliver your message asap -


A Message from Emily

Dear Family and Friends,

I am so lucky to know all of you! Wow...I feel more blessed than ever and have felt your love and concern. Thank you so much, Angela, for keeping everyone updated with the blog. You all know more about me right now than I do! I remember many moments in the hospital when Curtis would be reading me your emails...thank you for lifting my spirits and helping me get better. I feel the strength of all your thoughts and prayers.

Every day I feel a little better and it's great to be home.
Thank you all!
Love, Emily

Emily, It is great to see your smile. I am so thankful for our friendship and am so glad that you are on the mend. Your baby is adorable. She (and the big kids) are so blessed to have you and Curtis as their parents, and your wonderful supportive families. I hope that I will be able to see you soon. We may be headed back to California, nothing set in stone yet. Take it easy and get lots of rest. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers. Sam and Dave.

Great to "see" you. Your baby looks happy to be in her mama's arms. We are still crossing our fingers for you. My girls always bless you in every prayer they say. I'm sure the results of the EEG will be good (and miraculous) because you are such an amazing person! Good luck while you are on the mend.

Todd said...

We have been praying for you and hope you continue to quickly recover. I wish we were closer because I think of all you did for us with Kiera and I wish we could pay you back a little. Kylee was very worried when she first heard about you she said "I bet Jared is really worried". She checks the blog everyday and keeps us updated. Take care of yourself. We are glad you are home. WE were all very concerned for you.

Amanda said...
