The Burk family was released to go to the Ronald McDonald house for a trial “at home” run. On Monday Ella has a doctors appointment at which time they will make further decisions about them returning to Oklahoma. We are so excited about the possibility about the family coming home but we know there are going to be many many new things to learn along this new part of the journey. There is a 10% mortality rate of these heart babies between the first and second surgeries who get a secondary illness and their bodies can’t fight back. Regardless of the new restrictions that will be in place for Ella’s safety we are so grateful to even have her on this journey.
Many of you have been patiently waiting for details about the fundraiser walk/run for Amy, Jon and Ella. So here is the scoop:
