We visited Ella this evening and she looked good. We waited while they took another blood gas test: her levels had increased from the afternoon test. This is a positive sign.
Dr. Kays was called into the hospital to treat another baby for an emergency and he stopped by to see Ella. He was pleased with her stats. Again, we hope that this will be her week for surgery. We are anxious to have her removed from the ECMO machine and to see her reach this very important milestone.
…and just in case you were interested, Josh wanted me to let everyone know that the name of Ella’s monkey is Reneke (rah-knee-key) 🙂

Tina and Josh, I just got off the phone with Ron and Daph Hollowbush. I can’t believe it took this long for me to touch base with them. They will be watching the site. They send their Love and Prayers for Ella and you. I am glad to hear that Ella and Reneke are doing well. I think the CD’s are helping as well. Love all three of you. Grandpa

Hello, dear friends… There was a sweet and very true worship song in church this morning that made me think of your lovely little Ella. I thought I’d share the chorus with you.

“The way that you are
Is the way that God made you
Don’t be afraid, He will sustain you
Because you’re beautiful the way that you are”

Thanks for all the photos. Love you! KL

Good morning Sweet Ella. Your uncle Rick is planning a trip to come see you! We love the fact that your stats are improving and hope that means surgery is right around the corner. Tina and Josh, already such great parents, love the CD!

Hugs to you all.
