Ella was up 7 times last night between 12:30am – 7:30am. It was rough on Mom.

Ella seemed to take some warming up this morning. I think maybe she was tired from not sleeping well either. So I could hear her screaming this morning and giving Kelly a hard time! But once she decided that it was a new day, she started to have fun.

We tried to pinch Ella a bunch of times, but then realized that she had the slightest bit of green on her shirt! Yep, it is hard to see, but there is a vine with flowers at the top of her shirt.

It seems like her cold might be on the mend. Her nose seemed a bit better today. And we were slow with any therapies, but she seemed more tolerant today. Plus, it was 70 degrees today in Denver, so Kelly took out the Bun to enjoy the sunshine!

Her weight was 9.57 kilos this morning. She is still hanging out in the same range of weight, so we will likely try increasing the volume of food tomorrow. We’re excited that she has not had any fluid issues so far. In the past, just deciding to increase volume was not an option. But so far, her numbers are looking great, so we are going to go for it. If there are any problems, it should time out with her pulmonology appointment next week.

Glad to hear that she’s doing so well, fluid-wise. What a relief!

How has the retching been since the surgery? Have you noticed any decrease in that at all?

Ella, Happy St.Patricks day. You are looking great but I think we need some night training so that Mom and Dad can catch a break. I am thinking that maybe you can come work with Grandpa so that you sleep during the day. I am so glad that it appears your fluid issues are under control. Please keep up the good work with your PT and OT. Catch you later. Love,Grandpa!!!!!!!
