But her family and friends remain optimistic while monitoring her progress. Adams provides daily updates about "Princess Emma" on a Caring Bridge website, where friends continue to post words of encouragement. Over the weekend, Adams posted that doctors have determined Emma still has her long-term memory.
“She was able to answer several questions using her eyes to indicate answers concerning her animals’ names and favorite foods and activities that she remembers from before the accident,” Adams posted on the Caring Bridge site Sunday. “This is wonderful news and we are praising God for this miracle!!”
Emma’s parents have not spoken publicly since the accident, choosing instead to stay by her side. But through relatives, Emma’s parents have said they are overwhelmed by the positive thoughts by so many, and are grateful to Children’s Healthcare.
In addition to the Caring Bridge site, those wishing to assist the family can donate to the “Benefit account for Emma Johnson” at Regions Bank branches.
