Ella’s doing good today.

This morning, they have weaned her versed again just slightly (sedative medicine). Also, they drew blood to get a complete look at her liver function (biliruben count) as well as her electrolytes. Since they are weaning all of the meds, the balance of additional supplements they give her might need to be adjusted.

As of last night, Ella started to gain back some weight. She was at 7 lbs, 11 ounces.

With less and less tubes, it is getting easier to hold Ella. While they situated her into my arms last night, they had to adjust her CPAP head gear, so we grabbed a photo real fast. It was one of those brief moments of seeing her face without any tubes or tape. As you can see, I’m a little excited to stare back at that beautiful face!

We’re so thankful for the progress. She has such a sweet spirit. Reflecting back on these brief moments in time and the joy from the experience, just reinforces that the Lord is good. He does want the best for us.

We praise you Lord for your healing hand.

We thank you that you know us better than we know ourselves. That you know exactly what we need and what it takes to draw us into a closer relationship with you.

May Ella’s life continue to be a testament to your strength, wisdom and sovereignty.

Help us to continue to obey and listen to your voice, so we may become the people you want us to be.

We can’t thank you enough for this baby girl. Amen.
