Ella had PT today. She was a bit fussy but tolerated it and pushed through to make it a successful session.

When Kelly sat her down to feed her, Ella melted down again. She does not like the spoon or her fingers, so Kelly went back to dipping her binky in the food and she seemed to tolerate it much better (progressively, it is a step backward, but we need to take our victories where we can). And like her shirt states: Little in size, BIG in attitude!

Unfortunately, Ella was in lots of pain tonight with a bad case of diaper rash. Poor little Bun! At first, we had no idea what was happening. She seemed like she was in so much pain and she did not have a diaper rash earlier. Our minds automatically begin to think the worse with Ella – that it is something much more serious. Thankfully, it wasn’t major and Desitin exists. It is not the best smell and her butt is quite lathered, but anything to get rid of the pain she is experiencing. She has enough to deal with much less diaper rash!

As we end this day, we rest in the truth.

Micah 6:8 (NLT)
No, O people, the Lord has told you what is good,
and this is what he requires of you:
to do what is right, to love mercy,
and to walk humbly with your God.

Hello again – we’re home from traveling during the holidays. So glad to see that smile and those eyes. Mom, it’s a very old fashion treatment however corn starch works wonders. Happy New Year to all of you. Hugs and prayers, Steve and Joan

Hi guys,
Happy New Year West Family!! So sad to hear about the diaper rash. I want to pass on a tip someone gave me when Ashlan was covered with a terrible diaper rash. Some diaper rash is actually a yeast infection and has to be killed. Lotrimin and Monastat both work really well. It was amazing with Ashlan. The terrible rash disappeared immediately!! Just a thought. Love you guys and really need to plan a time to see you all soon. Life is so crazy isn’t it.

Happy new year to you and may God continue to bless your family. Ella is such a beautiful little girl and we continue to pray for her healing. Diaper rash is awful, but my great- grandmother’s cure was to brown flour in a skillet and sprinkle our bottoms. This techique has worked for four generations!
Peace & Blessings
