Valentines in Gainesville? Easter in Gainesville? No, I don’t think we’ll be here that long, but you never know. God’s timing is interesting to say the least. All I know is that we will be here until His work is done. We continue to trust Him, and know COMPLETELY that He is in control.
Ella was doing ok last night. I went back with Tina to see her and her stats were looking real good. She was sleeping soundly. It was good to see her so comfortable.
We received a call this morning from the nurse practitioner letting us know that Ella had a very rough morning, so much so that she had to be re-intubated.
This is not totally unexpected, and in some ways we think it’s a good thing because it will give Ella’s nose some much needed relief from the CPAP. We went in to see the Bun this morning and she was sleeping soundly, and her stats looked good.
Her x-ray this morning confirmed that her left lung was still collapsed and that her right lung had partially collapsed as well. This is probably the main reason for her intubation.
Dr. Kays had indicated that he would do her nissen surgery tomorrow, only if she was doing better. Considering her current state, we’re betting surgery will be pushed off until Monday or Tuesday next week.
The passage below has been on my heart this morning. Very appropriate for Thanksgiving week.
Philippians 4:4-7
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Thank you for your continued coverage in prayer. I know there are many who do not post, but are with us here in Spirit. Praise God for all of you. His Kingdom come, His will be done. Amen.
