Ella had another good day and continues to do well tonight – – she has remained stable and slept a lot, as you can plainly see!

Dr. Kays plans to perform minor surgery tomorrow – – to remove her cannulas and place a chest tube on her left side to help drain fluids.

Please pray for success in the procedure tomorrow. Thanks again for the support and prayers during this time.

P.S. This verse really spoke to me today (Romans 5:3-5):
“…we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.”

Thanks for that quote, for without hope we have nothing… I am so happy that Ella is doing well, and I continue to pray for her…she is strong and she will beat this, I know this, because I have hope and faith, in her, and God’s plan for her larger than life spirit.
God bless you both for bringing this little miracle into all of our lives.
Much Love,
PS Just know that I like to start my day by looking at little Ella’s face and her progress, and end my day in the same way. Just knowing she is well and safe keeps me going, hoping, and praying…she deserves the best.

I love Lisa’s PS, I know we are the same way, starting our day with Sweet Ella and ending it with her too.

Sleep well Sweet Ella, many prayers for a good night sleep and success in your procedures tomorrow.

Rick, Shannon, Megan, Richard, Claire and Ryan (oh, and Shelby too).

My family and I are praying for you in California. I have passed your website on to prayer warriors in TX. I know you’re in FL… so precious Ella is definately being prayed for coast to coast around the clock. Praying for your strength and rest, Ella’s healing and pain, and continued wisdom and Christlike- calmness for Dr. Kays in tomorrow’s procedure.

Hello Beautiful Familly, I hope the little minor surgery goes well today. Josh and Tina when will you finally be able to hold your Sweet Bundle? Your arms must just be aching to cuddle her. Glad to hear you got some good rest. Give Ella a kiss from all the DuHarts. We continue to pray for Ella to stay strong and get better.
