Ella woke up in a good mood and did another poop for us! This was right after the docs came in to discuss discharge. We were elated! We made it home from the hospital just in time to start watching an amazing Superbowl game. It was nice to watch the game in the comfort of our own home. However, watching it aired from Miami with 60 degree weather at 7pm EST made us jealous considering the snowy weather we’ve had today in Denver!

Since we’ve been home, we’ve had 3 uneventful feeds and more poop. All in all, it seems like her system is cleared out and has started functioning more optimally. Heck, she is doing better than ever before with feeds. Twice tonight, she would start the feed laying down and would begin to sit up and crawl while I was trying to bolus feed her. Also, she used to whine and fuss when she would see me approach with the syringe (indicating that she was not looking forward to it). Now, she doesn’t say anything – – it’s so nice.

As stated before, we were in the hospital nearly a week but it gained us HUGE progress forward for Ella. In our book, that’s a touchdown!

What a relief! Bummer to have been in the hospital for so long, but life gets SO much better when you’re not fulla poop! Sounds like Ella’s happier, too. Hoping the weather clears up here and you can get out and about. In our prayers always. OXOXOX

Whew! Catching up was quite something! I’m thrilled to hear that this episode turned out SO well. Go Ella!

Well, I’ve been catching up on the last several posts – since Ella’s first day of crawling. I got such a kick out of watching her bang her feet on the floor and listening to her singing! For some reason I don’t get your email updates all the time (maybe my husband is accidentally deleting them?) No matter, I was ecstatic to see the progress Ella is making all around. What a precious girl! Still praying for you here in Atlanta!

I am so happy to hear that your daughter is doing so well. My daughter was born with the same birth defect and to date still has issues with it. Hers was not found until she was 6 weeks old. She will be 3 in May. To date, she still has issues with her bowels. We have had a few “urgent care” visits to help with this. I am in hopes that your daugher continues to do well.
