Ella is Here!

Ella is here! She was born at 3:23pm and weighed 7lbs. 4 oz. and 19 3/4 inches long. The family waited in a room just of the main hallway for several minutes as a team of more than 20 doctors worked to stabalize Ella and Amy and prepare Ella for her first surgery.

Around 3:55pm we saw a short glimps of baby Ella as the medical staff rushed her down the hallway. Ella has already been through so much, but her journey is just beginning. Please continue to pray!

We just heard from one of the RN's who said that Amy is doing well. They asked us to give them 30 minutes before we try to go see Amy. For now, we know that Mom (Amy) did great. We saw Dad (Jon) walk by with Ella giving her his full attention. He is a great dad already.

We won't have an update on Ella's progress for quite a while. Please check the blog often. We will post as soon as we have any new information.

Most importantly, pray.


  1. You are doing a fantastic job with the updates, Aunt Rachael! Thank you and I am passing the word along to all the prayer warriors in Tulsa!

  2. Praise the Lord! Still praying...

  3. Thanks for the update, I've been thinking of and praying for the family all day.

  4. Wonderful news -- Praying!!!
