Little change in plans

Instead of heading to Dallas on Tuesday, we are heading out today, we will be leaving shortly. Ella is still scheduled to have her cath this Wednesday the 27th. We are supposed to possibly have some bad weather in Oklahoma and just didn't want to risk missing her surgery due to bad travel conditions.

We will be staying in the Ronald McDonald House. It was truly a blessing that we got in, they told us they are very full and had no room for us. They told us the waiting list was 10 families hoping to get in tomorrow, and 8 families hoping to get in Tuesday! Then they told us they had their housekeeper call in sick, so we couldn't stay there. Jon talked to them and explained the importance of us having a healthy housekeeper due to Ella's heart and offered to clean our own room (we would clean it when we get there anyway.) they discussed it and when we talked to them again, they told us one of their volunteers had said they would prepare a room for us!! We are so thankful!

Please be praying for safety as we drive, safety from the germs that will be ALL around us, peace and wisdom for us as well!

Ella will be facing her 7th heart surgery this Wednesday, we can't put into words how hard this is, but we find strength in knowing who holds the future! Thank you all!


  1. Have a safe trip. Prayers for a successful surgery for Ella.

  2. Have a safe trip! Many prayers for you all.

  3. We are so thankful you were able to get a room and leaving early. Yes, sounds like there will be lots of problems travel wise. We will be anxiously waiting to hear about how things are going. Many prayers will be said for your precious little gift. You two hang in there.

  4. Dear Amy and John, have been keeping you are your family close these last few days and lifting you up in prayer --- we will be checking here for updates - we have decided that Ms. Ella needs her own publicist - she is a very popular little girl... May God wrap his arms around you Amy and John and give you comfort....... so thankful that they had a room for you at Ronald McDonald House!!! Many Many Many Many TEXAS sized HUGS!!
