Ella had a good day and was awake tonight for our visit. It was so nice to see her looking around and interacting with us.

Her blood gas at 8pm was pretty good, cO2=46, pO2=85. At midnight, her total chest fluid output was 36 for the left and 79 for the right, for a total of 115.

Nurse Michelle is taking care of her tonight, so we have left her in good hands! Thank God for nurses that truly care about our baby girl. It is so appreciated.

We are on track to keep a steady course. Please pray for Ella’s specific needs: her chest fluid to continue draining to the point where it resolves completely and for her strength to increase each day.

Also, for us to remain strong in our faith and persevere. God is speaking to us so much each day. We want to keep listening and obeying Him. We know if we do that, He will take care of the rest.

Hebrews 10:36
36 You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.

Josh & Tina,
It is so exciting to see the progress Ella is making in the midst of all of the struggles. We will continue to pray for the fluid reduction and for her to grow stronger each day. She is a very strong little girl and so, so precious.
You both have been a true example to many people and have touched many lives through your little angel. We know this is very pleasing to God and he is blessing you and many other people through it all.
We’re so glad you were able to get away over the week-end. Our thoughts and prayers are always with you. Take care!! Love, Johnny and Mary Lou

Side question: Josh, we are have a friend dealing with cancer and set up a web page for her. What software did you use for this?
