It was another day of Bun not feeling that great.

We decided to give 2 doses of diuretic again today (this is the third day in a row). We’re hoping that this continues to dry her out more. Her secretions are so thick. She is waking up throughout the night and spends a lot of the day retching on her secretions. The last time she started retching continuously, it meant that she was due for surgery. We’re not thinking that is the case this time, but it is a bit strange how all of a sudden this has picked up over the past few days. Is it that she is too wet? Is teething causing her secretions to be too thick? Is it something else?

We’re really not sure. Our plan right now is to try and maintain her diuretic by giving 1 dose per day and 2 doses every other day. Her pulmonologist would like her to get labs at the end of this week or early next week.

One thing is for sure: she amazes me. She has been retching all day and does not feel that great. And yet somehow, she finds the energy to still smile at me and Dad. I paused tonight and asked Josh if he was retching all day, would he do that?

Ella Renae…she teaches us lessons every day.

Psalm 118:1 (NIV)
Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good;
his love endures forever.

Ella, My little trooper you are truly amazing and have such a good spirit. I am sorry that you don’t feel well but we will keep trying to find the answer to the puzzle. I am going to be off work for a couple weeks and will get down to see you soon. I am praying the secretions and the retching will subside. Love,Grandpa!!!!!!!

Ohhhh…she is still so beautiful in her heart jammies! What a pumpkin! I hope and pray there are some insights soon as to what will make her comfortable and able to take a big giant step forward!

Hugs and kisses from Seattle!
