There is not much of an update, but we figured that you would enjoy a picture! We will let you know if anything changes.

Please continue to pray for strength and calm rest for Ella this weekend, in preparation for her surgery.

P.S. Mollie, you were not the last to notice, but probably the first! Josh added Ella’s photo in the top section of the site last night!

She is such a beauty. We enjoy every new picture and appreciate all the detail you are putting in to this website. When life settles down you’ll have to teach us to make one for our family!

Love, The Richards

Thanks for the picture. Claire’s words this morning… Dear Jeasus, help Ella heal and Ella I love you and you are so beautiful. Then she said Mom, that is all I want to say today. She just said one more thing Mom…We must go buy her a toy today to make her feel good. ; )

Rest Sweet Ella rest. We will be praying for your rest and strength all weekend.

My prayers are with you all for strength, stamina, and endurance. This is a very important time for all of you to recoup before the surgery. Praying for peaceful days and nights for yourselves and the staff at the hospital. I have a question–what color are her eyes and hair? It’s hard to tell from the pictures. Love to you, Laura

We do love the pictures – this blog has been our lifeline to you. We know and continue to place our trust in the One who brought Ella into being and has directed every step so far that He will be you all thru the weekend and as you all rest up and prepare for surgery Monday. Sleep sound in Jesus, sweet Ella.

All the pictures are wonderful to see = we look forward to each of them. Prayers continue for calm, peace and rest that strengthen and prepares the three of you, Dr Kays and his staff for Monday. The two of you are very special people as is your Ella. Enjoy your time together today and tomorrow knowing His arms are wrapped securely around the three of you. Lord Bless = hugs, Steve and Joan

Dear Tina and Josh,
Although we’ve never met you, we are friends of Mary and Jacks through the Assistance League. We have been checking your news each day and you all are in our prayers and hearts. Our family members, friends and our Sunday School Class are all holding you and your precious baby girl up in prayer.
God Bless You,
Elizabeth and Dave Norman

We are praying for rest this weekend and ask that God hold the 3 of you in His Hands as you anticipate the upcoming events. Hold fast to His promises…Romans 8 is so special to me; being reminded that nothing can separate us from His love. We are packing to travel back to Philadelphia this coming week and it’ll be hard not to have access to these regular updates, but we will be praying! It’s neat how we can be bonded together through prayer. We’re thrilled that Ella is doing so well through this trial and that she’s off ECMO…huge! It’s these waiting days that can be the hardest, but we trust everything into His perfect timing. May you all sleep sweet. Love, Ruth for Jeff, Netanya, Jesse, Evelyn & Priscilla
ps. we were online when Ella’s little heart picture appeared…very cute…it was a hit!

Hi Josh and Tina and Baby Ella,
Your daughter is just beautiful! I love the name Ella!! God brings Ella to my mind so many times during the day and I know that is because he wants us to be praying for her. We have been and will continue to until the entire West Family is back in Colorado. Please let us know if there is anything we can do here to help you guys…your house, dogs…whatever. We would love to help in anyway possible. Thank you for keeping us updated on your sweet Ella. I’ll be praying for rest for you all.
We love you guys,
The Whole Correia Gang!
