Yes, the moving trucks are gone and it is officially over…the move. I mean, the house is a disaster and there is a lot of work ahead of us, but it’s over. I can’t believe that we are back in our house.

Kelly spent so much time with Ella this weekend at the hospital. It was a tremendous help to us as we moved our household. She even spent last night at the hospital. That was a wise move considering that we did not finish with the move and retire until 2:15am.

Back to the most important topic, Ella. She looks good clinically and is behaving like she feels well. With 7 weeks of hospitalization under her belt, it is good to see her feeling better. I just hope and pray that this will be the beginning of a season of health prosperity. It would be really nice to have a long break before returning to the hospital for any in-patient stays.

Today, Ella was fed her during her normal feeding times but given 100ccs over an hour via the food pump. She seemed to tolerate that well, so we are going to look at increasing the rate of food over an hour tomorrow. Heck, if she looks good and seems to be feeling well, I might have to try bolus feeding her just to see what happens.

Ella is scheduled for labs in the morning. We’re praying for a good nurse and stable labs. Although she has been running dry, I would like to see if her BUN is different or essentially the same as it has been this past week.

We thank Him for our beautiful baby girl.

Habakkuk 3:2
I have heard all about you, Lord.
I am filled with awe by your amazing works.
In this time of our deep need,
help us again as you did in years gone by.
And in your anger, remember your mercy.

Look at those precious little hands… What a blessing.

I can’t express how grateful I am to be a part of this all–not just the house and job and whatever else, but this is really a life–family–that’s been (and is being) created and renewed, and it’s just fantastic the ways God is using it, I think.
I just keep thinking about having Ella come home later today *crosses fingers for great labs* and how great it will be to have her here, even amidst the mess and chaos. I’m praying for a smooth transition, for sure!

See you guys later!!

The Lord is good. He gives strength to the weary, Amen? What a Savior! We’re so glad that your move is in the past and that little Ella is doing so well. He truly hears your prayers. We’re looking forward to seeing Ella go home and are trusting for His perfect plan. Rest in Jesus.

As we grow in our capacities to see and enjoy the joys that God has placed in our lives,life becomes a glorious experience of discovering His endless wonders.

YAY!!! Good to hear you are back at your house. I’ll pray for Ella to recover and go home with you soon.

Ella, I am glad that the move is over and maybe you will be coming home soon. It has been really busy for Mom and Dad and thank you “SuperNanny” for taking such great care of the “BUN”. I am hoping to see you tomorrow. Love,Grandpa!!!!!!!!!!!!!
