Ella's ultrasound of her stomach was "normal". So now they are going to pull back the tube that was put in past her stomach and before mentioned narrowing in her intestine. Pull it back into her stomach and put it on a slow drip to see if her stomach will process the feedings. I have been praying so hard for her stomach to start working, so hard that at times I don't even have words to pray, but I know God hears my heart and I will continue to trust in Him.
Her heart continues to be functioning in the lower end of the normal range, which is a huge blessing.
It's hard not to look beyond today and imagine the day that we might take her home. I am going to continue to be thankful for each day we have with Ella. I partly write these things to remind myself....be thankful for His mercies......His love.
