Update = PRAISE

At Ella's cardiologist appointment today we received some incredible news... her right diaphragm is no longer paralyzed!!!!! Jesus has healed her!!!! Jon and I noticed a few nights ago that her sats were really high and she was sleeping, so the next morning I checked her breathing and it looked great to me, then Jon looked at it and it looked good to him too! We were almost positive that it had come back and she hasn't needed oxygen even at night since then! We were hoping that the appointment today would confirm that indeed it had fully come back and will NOT require an additional surgery... and it was officially confirmed!!!! Tomorrow marks 10 weeks since her last open heart surgery and she is doing PERFECT! She gained a pound and a half and grew an inch! The cardiologist said She looked perfect NO COMPLICATIONS!!!! Oh what a WONDERFUL thing to hear! She is still of course at risk of getting sick, so we will still have to take strong precautions especially through the end of the flu season, but overall this is a huge step! We will be able to slowly start seeing more people and going to some events as long as we are cautious, of course Ella is still off limits to other people ESPECIALLY KIDS! But we are VERY encouraged at this new "freedom"! Thank you all for your continued prayers! We ask that you continue to pray for her and our protection from germs and sickness, we also ask that if we come in contact with you in the near future that you make sure that you are not sick at all before approaching us, we have come so far and we don't want to backslide now!! I hope you can all understand how grateful we are for your support, prayers, and understanding with the boundaries! God has been so merciful to us, praise Him, praise Him, praise Him!!!! Have a wonderful day in the Lord!!

  3. Dear Amy and Jon,

    I've been following Ella's story ever since Jen Weintraub (LOVE her!) took pictures of your newborn angel. What wonderful, wonderful news to see that this sweet baby is healing so well. Many good wishes to your family.

  4. That is so wonderful to hear. That picture is also precious.

  5. Awesome news! Our God is so good!

  6. Praise the Lord! That is GREAT news!

    Prayers continue for your family.
