Ella was in a great mood today. She had no other therapies besides physical therapy. The therapist and I were noting that it seems like Ella has returned to her old self. It was so good to see…

This means that the Bun was likely getting too tired between OT and PT within a few hours of each other during the day. So, now that we have dialed back OT and trying to conserve her energy for PT, it has worked well this week. We will be trying to continue that trend so that Ella can get benefit from both of her therapy appointments.

Plus, we started giving Ella more diuretic last night. Even today, she has had more energy overall which is good. The PT even noted that her color looked better today.

And, well it happened…It’s unfortunate, but Josh was laid off today from his job along with countless others as part of a “company reorganization”. Fortunately, the company was generous which will give Josh a little cushion for finding his next venture. We’re just thankful for what the job has provided to our family up to this point. It’s been 3+ years and along with countless other things, this company let Josh telecommute in Florida while Ella was so sick in the NICU. That was amazing and meant so much; it was priceless for us.

Please pray for guidance and direction as we seek His next steps. We know He has a plan for everything and continue to trust in His ways.

Psalm 9:10 (NIV)
Those who know your name will trust in you,
for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.
