We went to see our baby girl late tonight because we were putting a little gift together for her. We burned a CD with Tina and I reading her some stories and layered some Baby Einstein music in between. We found a clock radio with a CD player built-in that can sit right next to her bed.
We got it all set up and I think she enjoys it. We could see her eyes look in the direction of the audio when it was playing. We’re hoping that the music and our voices will be some continuous comfort for her.
She is showing signs of indirect jaundice which is indicative of all she’s been through, but they’re watching it closely just to make sure her liver is functioning properly.
Her stats are doing ok. We pray that she remains to be strong so that the flow on the ECMO can continue to be reduced. Hopefully she’ll be removed from ECMO this week in preparation for surgery.

Always in my prayers for a full recovery and continued strenght for you two also. I think your Idea of a cd with your voices and music is so precious and important! Love Gloria & Red

What a super idea! But then knowing the two of you, it doesn’t surprise me that you put it together for your girl and I know that Ella will surely be comforted by hearing your voices.
Blessings and prayers are with you and Ella to continue to be strong. With Love, Fran

Awesome idea – bet it helps you both also to ‘leave’ a piece of you with her when you’re not there. Thank you SO much for your faithfulness w/t/ blog – anytime you want to post another parent-status update we’d love that too. Hugs and love to all 3 of you.
