If you did not have a chance to read yesterday’s post, you might want to catch up!

We just called to check in on Ella and discovered that nurse Angie is taking care of her today. What a nice surprise!

Ella’s blood gas last night at midnight was cO2=66, pO2=66. Thankfully it is slightly better this morning, cO2=61, pO2=90. She mentioned that Ella seemed comfortable and was sleeping sound.

As of yesterday, the plan was for Dr. Kays to replace Ella’s left chest tube. When we called to check in around 10:30pm last night, he had decided to wait until today, once the CT scan was performed. Although we have not talked with him, it would make sense that he might want to review the results of the CT scan before replacing the left chest tube and giving her one last chance for her body to resolve the issue.

We have not heard the exact timing of when the CT scan is scheduled, but we understand that it will be sometime this afternoon.

Again, Ella is scheduled for surgery on Wednesday, since Dr. Kays is not expecting her to improve. We know that the Lord could choose to resolve the fluid situation instantly. But we also recognize that whatever happens, His timing and ways are perfect.

Lord, we pray for your peace and comfort at this time. We pray for Ella’s safety during transport to radiology today. We ask that you bring wisdom to Dr. Kays and staff; we want to achieve great learnings from this scan.

We praise you and thank you for who you are – that we can have an intimate relationship with the God of the universe, that we can come to you for comfort and peace, knowing that we will never lose when we are centered in your will.

You always have our best interests at heart, even though we may not understand.

Thank you for the blessing of this little girl. Amen.

Hebrews 10:35-36
So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.

Oh, Lord, I echo these prayers for little Ella, Josh and Tina. Let them feel your intense presence during this time. I pray that Dr. Kays sees exactly what is needed and, with God’s grace, is able to help this precious baby on her road to recovery. Thank you for hearing our cries, Lord.
