Quick update

Just a quick update.  Ella has had a good week.  She is getting more calories through the tube from her nose to her intestine.  This will be done for a couple weeks or so until she gains more weight and proves that she can take full feedings.  Then her stomach will be tested and looked at again.







She has an echo today.  The first one in a bit over a week.  We are hoping and praying that there is good news to be found.  She has been stable and has had good lab work so we are hoping those are all results of a heart getting healthier.  We will see what our God has in store for our little girl.  A day at a time.

Thank you Jesus so much for all that you have done and all that you WILL do.  Our hope is in You.

oh, christa! i am praying with you for wonderful test results, ... that the docs will be given great wisdom as they check every tiny detail. ... that nothing will be missed, and they will be amazed at the results they find. :) don't know that i have ever loved a child that i have never met, so much! but it seems that God has chosen to bring her into the lives of many, ... and has already used her as an instrument of encouragement and hope. i will be thinking of her and praying for you as we celebrate another baby this season. :) love you guys.

Oh, Chris! Praying for good news!! So glad she has had a stable week....her pictures just keep getting cuter and cuter, what a little love bug....mommy's little love bug! I pray for peace and strength for you and Erik through this time of waiting. I am sure you hold your breath for these tests, before and during, as well as while you hear results. You are constantly in my thoughts and prayers and I hope that little Lijah and Ayden are doing well, they are so adorable (love the recent pics)! Precious Jesus, please be with my friends during this time and hold them close. Love to all!

Love & Hugs,
Kris
