Ella required 2 liters while she snoozed last night (saturations 96-97). This also led to her waking up multiple times throughout the night. Little sleep for Mommy!

When Kelly weighed her again this morning, she was down slightly in weight to 9.30 kilos (versus 9.36 kilos). Not a huge loss, but not a huge gain which is good.

So we gave her Bumex at noon again, to see if she would pee off more fluid. We’ll watch her closely tonight and see what her weight is tomorrow.

Although she required more oxygen throughout the day, she did well with her eating. She went on a food frenzy and ate small amounts of peas, green beans, apple/raspberry/banana, and plain apples. It was a satisfying day for Super Nanny – she was able to see all her work paying off! Heck, Ella was even smiling during her PT session too!

Tomorrow is our big day at the hospital with the upper GI and renal ultrasound tests. We’re praying that the tests show nothing severe, but give insight as to her current condition.

Isaiah 65:24 (NLT)
I will answer them before they even call to me.
While they are still talking about their needs,
I will go ahead and answer their prayers!

Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying.

~ Romans 12:12, NLT

I am praying for her!

Ella is in my prayers-May God be with you today and give the Dr’s the knowledge to help Ella. Ella is looking very good and PT seems to be helping. By the way you have a beautiful house.

Ella, What great news with the feeding for you and Kelly must be really happy. I am praying this morning for you to have some positive results with your tests at the hospital. I hope the visit is a good one and that all goes well today. I will give a call later today and check on you. Love,Grandpa!!!!!!!!!!

We moved into a new house. Yeah! But we have been without internet for a month. Boo! So I’ve gone a whole month without my little Ella. It was a sad but busy month. When you see her every day her progress seems slow, but after a month I’m amazed at how much bigger she is and she’s eating and her little toofers are really coming in. It’s SO cool! Hug and kiss on yourchothers for me. Love you all lots and lots.

Sweet Ella, you are amazing! Our Lord is with you and your family always. I pray that the test will be quick and comfortable and that all will point you and your docs in the right direction to healing.

I love you!
