The picture of her stats above represents the best birthday present Ella could give her dad…next to the Porsche she buys me someday ;-).

Ella is doing good on this Saturday. 100% on her saturations most of the time, and a very comfortable baby girl. The rate of her fluid output (14ccs) has slowed down for the same time frame as yesterday (27ccs), but she doesn’t look swollen, which is good. Her chest x-ray doesn’t look better than yesterday’s, but it doesn’t look a lot worse either.

The fact that she is not fussing quite as much is an indicator to us that she’s doing better. Oh, she will do the normal baby fuss, but not the scream-so-hard-that-my-head-turns-bright-red-and-my- stats-drop fuss.

Overall she looks better today then she has the last few days. We’ve been able to enjoy a good amount of awake time with her as well. We don’t know what tomorrow will bring, but we will drink in all the goodness of today.

Lord Jesus, thank you for this baby girl. Thank you for the good day. We will praise you today and praise you for tomorrow. We continue to lay it down before you, and look to you through this time. Your grace and mercy abounds. Your blessings overflow. Praise you Father. Amen.

Hey Gosh, Happy Bithday. Way to go Ella! Been praying for goods stats and fluid flow so we can see what miracle God is gonna do next.

PS. You may want to rethink the Porsche…after she gives it to you, you are then going to feel obligated to loan it to her when she asks. Except it won’t be her driving it…it’ll be her boyfriend who rides his bike everywhere cause he doesn’t have enough money for a car. Be happy with tea parties…they are very special and cost less to insure.

Dear Family,
So wonderful to know that prayers matter. Ella is so cute today and less of her too.
Josh we have never had the blessing of wishing you happy birthday. Well, not for a long time anyway. I am not very good at birthday wishes not to mention cards. Know in your heart that I find it a great pleasure to wish you this birthday as a great accomplishment. Many would fold under such pressure. You and Tina and Ella have done great. We are so very proud of your allegiance to Our Lord and Savior. We are astounded at your healthy attitude and the determination to do what is right. Our love to you and your little family. Our prayers will continue to support your decisions. All our love, Aunt Char and Jim

Blessed baby. I’ve come to know you and your family through a friend, and we watch your progress everyday. Today the lord has made your eyes shine, you are precious! My prayers to you sweet angel and your family. The lord is kind and full of mercy, he has carried you and holds you in his arms every hour of the day. Rest well.
