Ella sustained through the night and is doing well this morning. She is still losing a good amount of fluid from both chest tubes, so they are replacing her fluids as needed. We don’t expect much to change with her care over the weekend; we’re just hoping for the swelling to reduce.
As for the parents, we’re hanging in there. We miss the Colorado weather – – Florida is way too hot!
It has been nice to have Grandma visit. She and I escaped a bit yesterday for some shopping at the mall.
Then, all three of us went to dinner last night. Josh could not help himself. He took pictures of me last night as I was thinking of my litte girl. We were at Macaroni Grill where they provide crayons and paper for the table cloth. So, I went to town!
Thanks for all the support and prayers. We plan to visit Ella later today at the hospital and will take some more pictures to share!

Lord Jesus, please heal this precious baby! Thank you for her parents who love her so dearly and have entrusted her to You. Grant them your peace and we pray for your healing mercies on baby Ella. Please heal her little body so that she may grow steady and strong and one day praise Your name! Amen.

I attended a women’s retreat at church this morning. Many prayers and thoughts are coming your way – Sweet Ella is sustaining and He is guiding her steps as well as yours. So glad that grandma is there for all of you. Prayers continue and our love and hugs for all of you – Steve and Joan

It was great to see pictures of Mom and Dad out and about. I know it is so tough to leave the hospital but glad to hear you are able to take some breaks away from NICU. Glad Mom is in town to take Tina Shopping!

Rest well sweet Ella…
