Well, she's had a bumpy start, but that is one BEAUTIFUL little girl! May God continue to heal her, make her heart strong for a long and productive life. May her life be a reminder to all of the POWER of our God, his gifts to us in the form of gifted doctors and medical staff, and the collective POWER of PRAYERS of his people!

We have a granddaughter of our own due in April and are very excited! Our eldest grandson (who will be this baby's big brother) is due to graduate from High School in June. We are trying to get the funds together to visit them in Texas, we know it will happen, we just don't know how.

I pray that God keeps all parents strong in these troubled times.

Just wanted to give an update on baby Ella...

She is doing extremely well! She has had no signs of complications at all! My brother and his wife could not be more proud as are the rest of the family. Smile

Just wanted to share a recent picture with all of you who will always have a special place in her heart and in mine for all of the prayers and wishes...

Hello all,

I just wanted to give people an update as to how Ella is doing.

This past Friday Ella was having issues keeping food down and her color was changing slightly. Out of concern, my brother and his wife brought her to the local hospital where she had low O2 levels and was unable to eat. On Saturday, she was transported to Brighams Childrens Hospital for further observation and testing.

On Saturday evening, while getting a routine echo test of her heart, Ella went into cardiac arrest. She received cpr for 30-40 minutes before she was able to be breathe on her own again. She had emergency surgery on her heart and it was determined that her aorta was narrowed and was not allowing the blood to move through her heart. She received a stint to keep the aorta open and was hooked up to an ECMO machine (a device that pumps the blood out of her body, oxygenates it, then redistributes it through her body), in hopes that her heart could rest and heal any damage from the arrest.

I just heard from my brother that they began to ween her off the ECMO machine and her heart is looking good and began working on its own. It's just a waiting game now and their hope is that her heart can heal enough and become strong enough to have the second (of three) surgery for her HLHS.

I was in Milwaukee from Wednesday until last night. I've never felt so helpless in my life. I just prayed and prayed and prayed and asked for Gods strength for everyone. Even though I am home now, I still feel helpless, but the prayers and Gods light are where I find my solace. She is a strong girl and has proved that already, but any and all prayers and thoughts are welcomed right now. Thank you all...

-Adam

Adam, I will be in continual prayer for Ella. I know that I know that the Lord will pull her through and the testimony will overcome, with the blood of the Lamb just as God's word says!

Hang in there and trust in the Lord and His will!

Thank you all so much. She has proven her strength before with the help of God, and I am faithfully holding onto the hope that she will pull through all of this.

As of last night she was taken completely off the ECMO machine, and was doing well. She has been undergoing tests all day today and from what my brother told me, she is showing good signs. I'll keep people updated as to her progress...

Thank you all again for the support. It means the world to us!
