Well Ella had an EKG and an echo cardiogram to check everything. After talking to the nurse practitioner she had a small concern so she talked to the cardiologist, he looked over the tests and agreed that as of today she is fine but will need to be watched even closer. Basically the flow to one of her lungs isn't as good as they would like, and is therefor causing her numbers to rise. The numbers are supposed to stay in the low 30's, but they have risen to 50.  Because of her restrictive atrial septum they are watching her very closely. There are a few things that could cause this to happen, but as of right now she is okay. We are going to see them again for more tests in a week and at that time if the numbers have continued to rise we may have to consider a cath surgery. Our prayer is that the numbers go back down or stay the same, we desperately don't want her to go through more surgeries, then necessary. So we don't know anything more other than it needs to be closely monitored. They will make more decisions in a week based on the numbers and tests. I will keep you updated so you know how to specifically pray. We knew this wasn't going to be an easy road, but we are always disappointed with any news other then a great report. Hoping and praying for the best, thank you for joining with us in lifting up baby Ella to the Lord.
