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 -



hello from Emily

Hi everyone.

First of all, some news about Angela (the sister who did this blog)...she had her baby! Oct. 30 and they named him McKay. Congratulations!

My EEG (brain test) showed no seizure-like activity. Very good news. It's pretty amazing that everything is going back to normal. Thank you all for your love and concern during this difficult time....I know I am better because of all the prayers that have been offered in my behalf. I am so lucky to know all of you! THANK YOU!!!!!

My mom came for a week. Then my sister, Julia, flew in from Washington (after finding arrangements for her five!) Now my mom is with me this week. I am so grateful for family. I don't know how I'll ever function without a "nanny" :)

Thanks again for all your emails and prayers, etc.

Love, Emily
