update 6-21-10


Well we went to see Ella's cardiologist today. Everything looks about the same on the ultrasound with her heart. This is good news that things are the same and not getting worse! We will be delivering Ella down in Dallas, and we will remain their until her first surgery/surgeries are completed and she is ready to go home. We will be traveling down to Dallas on July 6th to meet the team that will be working with us and caring for Ella, at that time we will set the date for her delivery. This is a huge relief for Jon and I to finally know where we will be. Please continue to pray for Ella's heart, as this is one of the hardest conditions that there is to take care of. Also please pray for all the doctors and surgeons that will be working on her. I am 32 weeks along and Ella is weighing in at 4lbs. 5oz.!!! She is a growing girl, this is a great sign! At the first of the appointment Ella was face down so they couldn't see her face or her heart very well, they kept pushing on her and she would wiggle all around but she would not turn over. When the first nurse left the room, I told Jon that he should try to tell her to turn over so he leaned over my stomach and talked to her for a little bit and told her to turn over, when the next nurse came in to look at her heart she was in the perfect position!!! She loves her daddy! Thank you all for your continued prayers, they are so appreciated!

  4. Amy, I love hearing all the updates and following along on your journey. You are such an inspiration and have amazing strength. My parents live in Dallas and have alot of connections with Dr's and people in the area from there church and in there community. I know it will be hard to be away from home during the time while Ella is in the hospital there. If you can think of any way my family or there church family could help you guys out at all in that time just let me know. My dad is an assiciate pastor at a church in Valley Ranch witch is right outside of Dallas so if you guys need anything at all, just let me know! What hospital will you be delivering if you don't mind me asking? If you would like to keep this private I understand! You and Jon are in my prayers!
