Well, it has been a relaxing day hanging inside the house while the snow and wind was outside. It started last night with freezing rain which had a cool effect on the windows throughout today!

Grandma Eusey did some sewing mends for Ella, Josh & I played cards, Ella tried eating some pears, we had a blowout diaper…all a part of the fun of a snowy Saturday.

We’re hoping the weather improves tomorrow for our last day with Grandma Eusey.

P.S. We went to church tonight and reflected on the hindsight we now have. Two years ago today we found out about Ella’s condition. We always knew the Lord had a plan, but couldn’t imagine how much He would use this precious girl to further His Kingdom. Praise God for our miracle girl.

I just wanted you to know that I spent hrs reading about Ella last night. I have an 11 week old baby boy in the hospital, with cdh, and him and Ella had a lot of similarities. Camden was trached, 2 weeks ago because we wanted him to get up and start moving. He is doing well. As you know, it is a rough journey. He also didnt have much of a diaphragm adn was on ECMO for 3 weeks. My heart ached for you as I read your story. It felt so close to home. btw, she is beautiful! I am rattling on, but you both inspired me. Your faith in Jesus is awesome…He is the only way to deal with life in general, and I am so thaknkful for Him. I wouldn’t have made it through without Him.
I am keeping up with your miracle, and praying for her too! Hugs, Devon

Yes, Thank God for this miracle child, Ella. I see Him in Ella’s eyes each and every day.
God Bless You All
