Ella’s day was rocky again.

We had to call the pulmonologist once more to ask for more direction. He advised to give another round of Bumex and go back to her aldactazide twice per day. It seems like when we give her the Bumex, she has significant urine output and her stats improve. But as the day continues, she trends in a not-so-good direction.

At this point, we’re not really sure what to think. She is asleep right now and doing okay but she could turn at any point. Last night, it felt like she was up all night. I went into her room 15-20 times. I’m hoping tonight is better.

The doctor did tell us that if she does not improve after this dose of Bumex, we might need to consider coming back to the hospital.

Please pray for Miss Ella. We want her to feel better and certainly do not want to go back to the hospital. And as always, she somehow manages to smile.

Psalm 120:1 (NLT)
I took my troubles to the Lord;
I cried out to him, and he answered my prayer.
