Ella is having a stable day. She is currently asleep, but we could not resist showing you this picture of her bright, awake eyes from last night.

Her latest blood gas was cO2=55, pO2=86, which is acceptable for her condition right now. Her saturations are not as high as we would like but are hovering around the mid 90’s.

We have not talked to Dr. Kays today, so we are not sure what to think about her chest fluid output. Her total for the day was 2 from the left and 7 from the right, for a total of 9cc’s at 2pm. So once again, they are not draining. Is it due to the decrease in octreotide medicine from 10ml to 7ml? Is one of the tubes clogged again and needing replacement? We are not sure.

All is perfect in His timing. Thanks again for your continued prayers.

Princess CinderElla, we don’t know a better prayer than that of our own sweet Maren for the “owie in your tummy” to get better so you can come home soon. We love you, precious one. XOXOXO

Continued prayers for your precious big eyed girl! She is absolutely beautiful. When we brought our daughter home from the hospital, my husband and I would put her in her bouncy seat in the center of the kitchen table. We would eat our dinner with a sweet baby as a centerpiece- all the while repeatedly telling one another how pretty and intelligent she was. THAT DAY IS COMING FOR YOU! And you will tell each over and over, that GOD IS GOOD and FAITHFUL! All in His time. Looking forward to answered prayer!
