Since we met with Dr. Kays yesterday afternoon, the ECMO machine was reduced to 120 (we have been reducing in increments of 20, starting at 220). Ella is continuing to fight and her stats have remained stable despite the turn down in the ECMO machine. She is doing well.
Also, the seizure medication that they have placed her on is doing its job. She has not had any since they placed her on the meds.
Going to visit her is tough, but at the same time, is so good for the soul. She is sooo cute and has such a sweet spirit. She deals with the wires and discomfort like a champ.
We love her so much. Please pray that she continues to remain stable and gain strength. We would like to see her ready to have surgery this upcoming week.

Tina, Josh,
Little Ella is so lucky to have such loving parents. God will give you all the strength you need. He is with you and Ella, right here, right now. You are in my prayers.

Your sweet little baby has left her footprints all over my heart…I can’t stop thinking about her! How is that possible when I have never even met her? I think she is PERFECT!

Not only is Ella a miracle, but oh my…the strength you and Josh show, is incredible. Not just anyone, would be able to go through what you two are going through…and making it through like true children of God…
Every day, Jim and I log on, hesitantly to see the updates..and are soooo amazed with the stength and courage you, Josh and most of all Little Ella show. You have touched our hearts and we pray for you every day…Ella is doing so well…
