Ella’s stats maintained through the night even with the ECMO flow reduced. She did have a couple dips in her blood gases during the times she was being handled, but this is not out of the ordinary. Her bilirubin levels have dropped off as well, which was the hope after the ECMO circuit switch.

We’re anticipating a call from Dr. Kays this afternoon with an update.

We continue to pray that our baby girl grows stronger every moment, allowing her to come of ECMO in preparation for surgery.

Praise God for all He has done and continues to do.

Well she has a California tan. All our monkies had the same tan. Claire was walking around the house this morning after we prayed saying Go Ella, Go Ella, No ECMO, No ECMO. I think God gets her point – ; )

Hugs little orange monkey.

Praise God for the miracle, not only of the good news of Ella’s improving condition, but for the miracle that is the West family. Josh, we think you’d look good in a matching blue headband . Love to you all.

Happy 3 weeks Ella! I’m so happy to hear that she is responding so well. You guys are always on my mind and my family prays for Ella every night! Much Love XOXO The Reeds

This outpouring of love and Prayers coming from everywhere for Little Ella has touched many hearts I am sure. Josh and Tina are permitting their testimony to be made public and their faith in the Lord to be shared with us all.
This will not only touch our lives but will serve as ongoing testimony to others in their time of need no matter what it is, in the future.
This could be a new calling for them both.

Thank you God for this Miracle Baby precious Ella. Lord wrap your healing and loving arms around this precious infant and minister to her.


Love and kisses,

Grandpa Jack couldn’t have said it better. If it hasn’t been mentioned, congratulations to all the Grandparents for their precious gift that is Ella. As a parent, I can only imagine how overwhelmingly proud you must be of Tina and Josh. God Bless you all.
