So we got word this morning that Ella will be going in for heart surgery some time tomorrow (Friday) afternoon. She will be receiving a stint in one of the valves of her heart to keep the blood flow consistent and to prevent it from backing up. This is a pretty serious operation but I know that she is in good Hands. I also heard the surgeons were pretty good too. Wink

Thanks to everyone for their thoughts and prayers. Myself, as well as my family, are truly grateful for every ounce of support.

I am not sure if I will be in Boston for the surgery (it is a 4-5 hour procedure), but I will update as I hear more. Thanks again and God bless you all...

Adam, been outta town all week, wanted to say it is great your niece came along and doing fine. One of my elk hunting partners and his wife had thier first daughter born to them just over a year ago withvery similar heart issues. She was a year old last Saturday and is a beautiful, healthy little girl.

Ella is in surgery as I type this. I am heading down to Brighams in a little bit to wait with my family. I am an absolute wreck right now emotionally, but I'm staying faithful. It's just scary. My girlfriend told me that she read it is easy for us to be faithful when times are good and trust in God when things are going our way, but the true test is when we are at our lowest point and how much faith we can put into God when venturing to the unknown. We must know that God has a plan and that His plan is what is best for us.

I believe this to be true. Thank you all so much for the kind words/thoughts/prayers. I can not express how much that means to me. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

-Adam

Here is my 4 year old nephew meeting his new baby sister for the first time yesterday... Smile





My brother and Ella...

Hi Adam,

We are joining you in prayer. Please remember, it doesn't take 'great faith' just faith. Our Lord said faith the size of a 'mustard seed'. God is not limited by the 'size' of our faith, we just have to remember to trust that 'All is well'.

That sure is a beautiful little girl!

More prayers going up right now!

Father, you know the need that is at hand with Adam's niece. We just ask that she abide in the shadow of your wing as we speak and that the doctor's that she is in the care of receive the extra measure of wisdom they need to see her through the surgery at hand. Above all may your glory be revealed through that precious life and in the hearts of all those touched by it! Thank you so much for your goodness and comfort that is surrounding Adam's family at this very minute. May they receive a double portion of comfort and rest! It is in your Son, our Savior Jesus' name that these things are asked! Amen!

I'm a little behind the curve on this one. Just now saw it.
Ella,
The Lord bless you and keep you.
The Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you.
The Lord lift up His countenance unto you and give you peace.

Adam, that goes for you and your family too.

I got to see Ella again yesterday, she is doing very well and they are supposed to be closing up her chest today. We are so proud of her for being so strong. I swear when you are around her you can feel a higher presence. It is absolutely amazing. The thoughts and prayers are evident in every ounce of her. Thank you all so much...

I'm planning to go see her again this weekend. She will probably have to be at Brighams for 6 weeks before she can come home. She is a strong girl and I know and have faith that she will be fine. God is great...He truly is...

Thank you all again and if you could keep her in your thoughts, I would much appreciate it...Thank you!

-Adam

Hey all, sorry for lack of updates! This past week has been a whirlwind...I've been extremely sick and stuck in bed for the past 4 days.

Ella is doing AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!! She is recovering so rapidly, we are all so happy. My parents were able to go down to see her on Sunday, and sent me some pictures afterward. She looks incredible. You would never think that just a week ago this child had open heart surgery. She was smiling and full of life. God is great!

I haven't been able to see her in over a week and it's driving me nuts. I can't visit when I am sick so I need to wait to get better. They said that because of her rapid recovery, she may be able to come home as soon as this week!

Again, thank you all for all of your thoughts and prayers. It means the world to us. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

This past Sunday...
