Ella slept good last night and even retired around 10pm, which is earlier for her these days.

She had both occupational therapy and physical therapy today. Ella wasn’t up for much food, so they switched to some other exercises. And physical therapy was entertaining – the cat decided that she wanted some attention from the physical therapist too!

Kelly mentioned that Ella had a few big meltdowns today. When we use that terminology, it typically means that she is not easily consolable, requires extra oxygen, loses her color and it takes a long time for her to recover. Most of the time this happens when she is not feeling well. We know that she is on the tail end of her cold, but did seem a bit strange that she had multiple meltdowns.

There is a lot still on our hearts and minds, but find ourselves too tired to share much. We’re still praying for wisdom and guidance from Him. Also, praying for Ella to continue getting stronger and feeling better. We love her so much and although this past week has been hard, it sure helps ease any hurts when we look into those blue eyes. She is such a miracle.

1 Peter 5:7 (NIV)
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
