Ella's appointment went well today! She hasn't lost any weight and may have even gained a few ounces, it was a different scale so we don't know for sure, but this is GREAT !!!! That being said... NO FEEDING TUBE, for now anyway! Ella also had an EKG and that looked good! Our main concern right now is her diaphragm. We need God's healing hand to touch her right diaphragm, she will be on oxygen for however long it takes for it to be healed or if for some reason she starts having problems we will consider an additional surgery to tack it down. Until this diaphragm is healed we are cautioned to keep her as healthy as possible because if she was to get sick and get pneumonia it would be REALLY bad. So although Ella is still struggling to eat, she did eat 5 1/2 ounces in about 15mins. when we got home today, and it was taking 1 hour or more to get her to eat 4 ounces!!! THAT IS AMAZING! Thank you for your continued prayers for our family!
