Ok…so we didn’t think our girl could really get much cuter, but I think this picture says it all.

Ella is doing great tonight. She is finally off of any kind of mechanical ventilation. Just a nice flow of oxygen through the cannulas. Holding her is so much easier now without having the CPAP attached.

She’s still doing well with the full feeds going into her stomach, and the weening of her other meds continue.

Dr. Kays has his hands full these days with a total of 8 CDH babies in the level 3 NICU. This is the most CDH babies in this nursery at one time.

While we continue to pray for our sweet Ella’s success, we would also request prayer for Rusty, Liz, and baby Par (Phillip Andrew). I’m sitting a couple rooms over from him now, Rusty is sitting quietly next to him.

Par is stable at the moment, but he’s at a critical point of possibly going on ECMO. Please pray that Par will not require the use of ECMO and that he would remain stable and strong through the night.

Heavenly Father, we come before your throne of grace with hearts of reverence. Thank you Lord for the gift of Par, and the blessing he is. We thank you Jesus, that you are here, right now, right next to him. Lord we ask for strength and stability for this child, and for peace for Liz and Rusty. I pray that they continue to draw close to You during this time, and that this experience will be an incredible blessing and will bring glory to Your name.

We ask in the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
